In 1994, I walked into my first job as a middle school teacher teaching students with Mild Intellectual Disabilities. My Mom passed away from cancer in 2000 and I left my teaching job to take care of her and my daughter, who was in the 3td grade. Her death took an emotional toll on us and I decided to home-school my daughter. Due to medical challenges, I needed insurance and an income, so I had to return to the classroom but kept in touch with several of my homeschool parents. I enjoyed sharing with them the resources I created for my students and the feedback they gave me motivated me to keep creating and sharing!
I have taught general education and all levels of special education but I have to say, I found my teaching "jam" in a High School Functional Autism class. I LOVE my high school AU students! They have taught me so much about life and to see outside life's little box. They are truly AUsome!!! When the pandemic hit, I realized I had created SO MANY resources to share with my colleagues, homeschool parents, and students, I wanted to share with anyone who teaches and loves students. As I am looking down the road for retirement, this is what I want to do.... continue creating FUN and ENGAGING resources to make YOUR life easier and allow your child to have fun thinking outside the box together!
