You know who I idolized? Mr. Rogers. Is there a market for the next Mr. Rogers? Because I'd love to do that. I'd much rather be quiet and important like him than live large and be some useless celebrity.

When you work with kids who have autism, they don't reciprocate any affection. You learn to find your self- worth within what you do, not what people tell you about yourself.

Family is something I've always wanted, the one and a half kids and a dog.

Working with children with autism has provided me with an opportunity to see the world in a different way. I see them strive to overcome obstacles and persevere, and learn to persevere myself. They are my inspiration.

I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions because I don’t think you should have to wait until December to start working on how to change yourself. I think if you’ve got a problem, you need to fix it now.

I talk to friends of mine who are now teaching; they've graduated and they have classrooms. And I get really jealous, and I get really excited talking to them about their classrooms, and I want one. I think I'd be happy.

In the tenth grade, I realized I am who I am. I've got big ears and big feet. I can etiher sulk around or I can be happy with who I am. The minute I decided to be confident with who I was, all that other stuff stopped. It's all in the way you carry yourself.

It's important that I make a difference in some way. It's not necessarily how I make a difference, but I want to make sure that I do.
