While volunteering 20 years ago at the San Joaquin County Office of Education, Loren Geiger encountered children who were intelligent but had serious difficulty learning from their school books.

As the years went by, Geiger's concern about these children became a passion, so much so that she persuaded a small private school in Galt to offer a special class for people known as "right-brained," some of whom have Attention Deficit Disorder. It will be known as the SMART Kids Program.

    Very interesting article. I'm happy to see teachers that truly work outside of the norm, and really go for it for their students. She's a great teacher. All teachers are actually great, it certainly takes a certain type of person to do what they do.

    Great job, Ms. Geiger! This is a school I wish we could have taken advantage of a few years ago. Best wishes to you and the children that will benefit greatly from this kind of school. My hat's off to you. :-)
