Chalkboard Champion: Special needs instructor with a special approach

Chalkboard Champions

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Josh Stolze has been teaching at ‘Beyond the Spectrum’ in Lakewood Ranch. He specializes in instructing severely autistic teenagers. One mother, Kelly Shamsey, says Josh’s passion for his job is amazing.

“He cares about the job and takes it seriously. He doesn’t just show up, but he loves your kid and he accepts them for who they are,” Shamsey said.

Stolze said his approach is simple.

“We don’t try to change the students, we cater to what they need. I love coming to work,” Stolze said.

And that’s why Josh Stolze of “Beyond the Spectrum” in Lakewood Ranch is our ABC 7 Gettel Automotive Chalkboard Champion of the month in Sarasota County.
