Mrs. Rabon is the proud mother of two neuro-divergent children who inspired her to create a learning environment that specifically serves students like her own. In 2019, she gathered a group of like-minded people to form the Midlands’ first tuition-free public school for children with dyslexia and other reading struggles. She has committed herself to working with the Board of Directors to establish a place that is not only a great place for neuro-divergent learners but also a great place for educators to be empowered to be the best they can be. Through collaboration with the PACE Board, Mrs. Rabon believes that they can create a caring and nurturing work environment for educators that will empower their team to be a shining example in South Carolina’s public education system.
