When would a teacher start a blog? In the summer obviously….

Starting a blog is something I have always wanted to do but have never been able to find the time or the technological expertise. No excuses now – I’m a week away from enjoying the entire month of August off, have only 8 more credits of grad school left to take, and have an awesome friend, Emily, who does web design – so here it goes!

I have been teaching for 5 years in a public school in a self contained classroom for children ages 10-14 (that’s a mouthful!). All of my students have autism and some are dually diagnosed (including cognitive impairment, Deaf/HOH, speech apraxia, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy). My kids are all extremely different and I have spent countless hours planning, analyzing, and constructing the most efficient, effective, and appropriate ways to teach them all. That is what I hope to share with you all! I have been fortunate enough to have some awesome coworkers to collaborate with on a daily basis. But I know that many special education teachers often don’t have people to collaborate with – many times they are the only one in their position, grade level, or concentration. Sharing ideas is one of the things that I love about teaching and I think it’s important to give everyone that opportunity!
