I teach a Mild/Moderate ASC-SDC class. In layman's terms, it's special education for students with a variety of different learning disabilities. Most of my students are classified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Most of my students are also classified as English Language Learners, who speak a language other than English at home. They all come from poor, urban areas of East Oakland, a part of California that is sometimes described as a "food desert" due to it's lack of readily available, fresh produce. My students are all 9th through 12th graders (ages 14 - 18), enthusiastic, social and friendly. They love video games, cartoons, comic books and drawing. One thing they don't like is eating nutritious, home-cooked food.
