My Students

Have you ever heard of a NEST classroom before? The goal of the ASD Nest Support Project is to advance the development and implementation of educational solutions for children living with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The ASD Nest Model is designed for students with Autism who are able to do grade-level academic work. We create a fully inclusive therapeutic environment that uses positive behavior support, targeted instructional strategies and specialized social interventions to make inclusion work.

The Nest program provides a safe, inclusive environment where students are valued as individuals and learn alongside their general education peers while developing foundational skills for continued success in school.

My co-teacher and I teach second graders who are working hard not only on academics but also navigating the social world. We choose to celebrate their strengths and use those strengths along with their interests to motivate them to work to their fullest potential. Our class prides itself on being a community of learners who aren't afraid to take risks, who support one another and who are working on being life-long learners!

My Project

Increasing academic rigor through fun and engaging lessons will help create a passion for learning in all of my students!

My students are working on learning not only academic, but social skills all while having fun and being excited about what they are doing.

I want to make learning magical and engaging!

This conference will help me grow as an educator! We will learn how to incorporate movement, technology, games and different ways for students to use critical thinking skills. As co-teachers attending together, this experience will enhance our already amazing collaborative work relationship.

We cannot wait to learn new strategies to incorporate throughout our lessons to ensure student success, build a respectful classroom culture, and raise student achievement.
