To illustrate how important it is to listen carefully, we played the age old standby telephone game.
It was fun but we did notice that the students tired easily. Listening carefully is hard work!
There were many giggles but the children also noticed it was hard to listen so closely. After the whole group telephone game, we broke up into two smaller groups to play games that all involved listening and eye contact.
Welcome to my Classroom!
I am passionate, a little bit quirky ( some may say a little bit more) and dedicated to serving children with Autism. These young people have touched me deeply and have made me a better teacher & hopefully person. I want to share what I have learned that allows these beautiful children to grow & sometimes thrive in my class.
I begin my 26th year of teaching this year! I teach in the Bay Area and live in the beautiful redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. My sanctuary, place of reflection and daily sitting practice.
My hope is that this website/blog will help others understand and see children with Autism as talented unique thinkers who can and will contribute to our world and anyone who knows them in positive ways.
