It's Been Awhile!

Leave a Comment

Hello again!'s been awhile...a LONG while!  If you're still sticking around...I THANK YOU!

Why have I been MIA, you ask?  Well...since my last post 10 months ago, I bought a house in England, visited family & friends in CA, one of my dogs passed away, friends came to visit, and the most exciting and educationally-related change is...

...I'm back in special education, as both a resource specialist and special education chairperson for my school!  It's been a good 2 years in general education and as much as I loved being a first & second grade teacher, my heart and passion continues to be in special education.  So when the opportunity presented itself...I grabbed it!  It's another change and learning curve for sure.  My previous sped experience have ranged from mild/moderate to moderate severe pre-k & kinder students.  Now...I'm working with fourth & fifth grade students with mild to moderate special needs in the general education population.  My awesome students come to me in the resource room and we work on their individual needs.  On top of that...I'm also the special education chairperson for my school.  Nothing like leading a team to jump right back into sped.  Another experience to add to my repertoire! Learning curve?  Yeah...just a little.  Stressful at the beginning, but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

So...I'm back!  I have my forever friend, Michelle Strazzeri, owner of in Orange County, CA and to thank for being an inspiration. 

How's your school year going?  I'd love to hear it!

Stay tuned!
