Shirley Jimenez is inspired by her younger sister with Down syndrome. This led to her being passionate about helping people with disabilities. She has done numerous volunteering activities throughout her life for children with disabilities, including teaching children in Africa. Shirley’s passion led to her studying and graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor’s in Special Education. She is also currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Special Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Shirley is now a special education teacher in Chicago Public Schools teaching kindergarten to second graders with low incidence disabilities.
