Hi, I’m Cindy Higgins, Director for Program Development. Thirty seven years ago I moved from Chicago on a grand adventure to the ‘Last Frontier,’ and Alaska became my forever home! I retired from the Anchorage School District after thirty five years working in a variety of capacities, including special education teacher, speech therapist, speech-language consultant, supervisor for related services and director for special education. The past two years at FOCUS have been rewarding in so many ways. I love the sense of community and team spirit, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful individuals dedicated to the FOCUS mission. At work and at home, I try to learn how to do something new every day!
