We are ending our Glassman unit brainstorming strategies to defeat this challenging Unthinkable so many struggle to defeat.
These are all the ideas we learned from watching /discussing our videos, role playing, listening/discussing two books, learning and practicing in class and we 'just know' through our experiences. The kids blew me away with their ideas, excitement and awareness! I did very little prompting as their ideas were shared, sometimes rapidly. I recorded them on the large GO chart and more followed. I noticed and pointed out the categories and started grouping them accordingly. These are wise children!
The children's ideas fell into
Strategy Blaster here we come! We are ready!
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.
