Hello! I am now on my 30th year of teaching Special Education and love it as much, if not more. I currently teach six sweet children in grades 3-5. These cherubs have sever/moderate autism and are "non-verbal" (meaning that they need an alternative way to communicate). I work with two amazing paraprofessionals who love the children as much as I do, and we are truly a team, often thinking and saying things at the same time. My students are really becoming emerging learners this year, thanks, in part, to the use of technology. We are amazed to see how quickly most of the students are learning how to interact with technology and can see even greater potential in them. I love seeing the "aha!" moment when they grasp a new skill, or say a new word. I try to make learning fun so that each child wants to go to school every day. I wish that you could meet them so that you could see how loving, funny, and kind they are.
