My name is Gary Lesniak. I live in central New York and work at a special education centered school. Here, I teach 5th and 6th grade students with autism and have been teaching here for 3 years now. Looking back even further, I began my college experience at Herkimer County Community College for a year and a half. I then transferred to Utica College for 2 and a half years. I've been at Albany taking online classes for a year now and am nearing completion in the CDIT program, with just one more semester after this one.
