Mrs. Risden — One of Jersey’s favorite teachers [SPONSORED]

Students in classroom (AVAVA, ThinkStock)Working with special needs children requires extra dedication and commitment in teaching. There are few special people among us who can do it.

The job is demanding and the rewards are extra special. It’s one thing when students sing your praises but when your colleagues recognize your work, that really stands out.

Renee Risden teaches special needs children at Lacey Township High School and pours her heart and soul into it. People around her have seen her students thrive over the last few years and note her accomplishments with pride.

Renee is also a Special Olympics coach.  This is truly a special teacher that makes a difference every day with children that need that extra energy and love that only a teacher like Renee Risden can give.
