DeAnna Pursai is s special education teacher, and the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the College of Adaptive Arts. She has also been named an "Architect of Change" by Maria Shriver, and co-awarded the Delta Kappa Gamma State Distinguished Career/Professional Service Award with CAA Co-Founder and Dean of Instruction, Dr. Pamela Lindsay.
