Teaching is like a trip to the amusement park…
There are some things that will make you smile. There are some things that will make you scream. You will probably spend too much money.
And when you get home you will be exhausted… but you will always remember fondly the fun you had.
Here I am compiling a guidebook of sorts you can use to plan your trip. This is a little nook in all the noise where imagination can be sparked, ideas hatched, and inspiration discussed.
I started teaching in 2005 at an inner city school where my only directions before the door closed on the classroom door my first day was “Don’t let them out.” As a special education teacher, I have taught with the self-contained model, the resource model, the co-teach model, the in-class support model, and the traditional teaching model with regular, special, and exceptional students. With that said, I believe all educators have an opportunity to change the lives of children every day.
I currently teach high school students with severe and profound disabilities just outside Houston, Texas. I am a wife, mother of four, and avid learner.
