Ms. Caroline LaFave


My name is Caroline LaFave and I am very happy to be a part of the Coppinville Junior High School family, working as a Special Education Aide.  I am originally from New York State.  I had the pleasure of living in various states and countries before settling in Florida.  I recently moved to Alabama after living in Florida for 27 years. During my time in Florida, I spent 12 years working for the University of Central Florida's Institute for Simulation and Training.  After leaving UCF, I became a Special Education Paraprofessional for Seminole County Public Schools for 13 years-3 years in a middle school and 10 in an elementary school.  I absolutely love working with special needs students.  I believe that many of these students can show great potential and be successful and beneficial to the community with the right guidance, instruction and acceptance.  I hope to contribute all I can to make each student feel that they can achieve anything they wish as long as they put in the effort and know that I will always be there to help them reach their goals.
