Hi, everyone. My name is Billie Foulk. I am married, have four children, and one fur baby. I love being the Special Education Parent Mentor for Glynn County Schools. I enjoy helping families and promoting self-determination. I have watched as my son, who has a disability and has been served by an IEP, has blossomed and I hope to help lots of other families watch their students blossom too...wherever, or however their petals may grow. I am happy to provide encouragement, guidance, and support…and hope to bring a little sunshine along the way. If I can be of any assistance to you or your child, please let me know.
