Staff Spotlight!

This week we are highlighting both of our amazing Occupational Therapists, Mrs. Fisher and Mrs. Cachares! Occupational therapy focuses on both fine motor skills and gross motor skills. These ladies are always busy meeting with so many kids with all varying needs and wants. They work on handwriting, pencil grip, walking, jumping, and anything in between! Students love working with Mrs. Cachares and Mrs. Fisher, especially if they get to use the swing in the OT room. A swing, in school, amazing! These two are always quick to help both students and fellow staff member and are such an important part of the team here at Kolmar. Thanks for everything you do ladies!
