My name is Trish Organ and this is my 7th year at Smart's Mill. I started out as the Autism Teacher for 6th-8th grade and this is my 2nd year as the Special Education Department Chair. I moved to Virginia from Texas in July 2012. I attended the University of North Texas and taught in Texas as a Special Education Teacher.  In Texas, I was very involved with Special Olympics, PALS program, Adult ASL classes and Autism Awareness Programs.
    I have been married for 24 years, have two children, a foster child and one amazing little grandson.  My son Aj is 20 and attends college at Bridgewater College.  My daughter Kristina just finished her Special Education degree and works here at Smart's Mill. My foster child, Jordan, is a Junior in HS. My grandson Cayden is turning 2- nothing better than being a Grandma.
