Haven’t practiced in studio for a week due to visitors, feeling run down, etc. I cherish my home practice but I also love being in the studio and feeling that energy of the room. Have a great Monday and beginning of a new month: wearing blue for Autism Awareness month, honoring my two rockstar boys and all the special and amazing kids out there on the spectrum. 💙#autismawarenessmonth #autismsuperheroes #uttitahastapadangustasana #standingpose #findyourbalance #poseoftheday #yogastrong #studiopractice #yogaeveryday #lifepower

When you walk through my classroom doorway be advised that beyond that point you're entering a learning zone. Sometimes that involves quietness. But most often you will encounter educational noise. Educational noise requires that learning is taking place through sounds of exploration, communication, and movement. Students are learning through play and developing their skills. A meltdown or two may arise throughout the day. But the learning process for my students is activated through their educational noise experience.

Picture day in his favorite shirt everrrr that he asks to wear every. single. day. 😘😘
My babies mean so much to me. My oldest was diagnosed with Aspergers "High Functioning Autism" at 19 months and we pushed so hard when he was young. He has had highs and lows. Our fight for him happens without any thought. We chose to homeschool him from K-2 and it was the best decision we could have ever made for him. We lost friends and were alienated by many family members but God gave us a stronger faith and powerful peace.  Now slide the screen to the next pic. Y'all look 👀 at this....yeah I am jumping for joy 😂. During the summer months🌞, parents receive a copy of their children's assessment scores📈. Nevada students take the SBAC assessment✏. For some odd reason we didn't get a copy of our children's scores this summer🌞. So, here I am fumbling around in my son’s notebook📔 today and my eyes snatch out this paper. Y'all I shook with joy 😂. Of course, I startled the kids😄. My oldest was too busy on his cellphone 📞to pay me any real attention. This kid surpassed📊 all of the average scores of our school, our district (Clark County), and the state.
Our house is rocking with joy😂. This is a reward for my whole house. The sleepless nights and prayers are worth it. We're just going to keep encouraging all our babies and honoring God🙏🙌every step of the way.

Morning greetings make a big difference. Every morning I greet my students with a happy eye👀level “Good morning _____.” They have to return a morning salutation to me in their best way😃. Yesterday morning me, my team, and all of our parents gasped😮 when our little sweetie returned a morning greeting. Well, it wasn't an average greeting 👍 it was an exceptionally strong💪, direct spoken sound to me. My mouth and everyone's mouth dropped😮. You could hear a unison sound of our chest being punched with amazement👊. She caught us all off guard, like boom 🔥“I’m here!” Those weren't her exact words but she looked 👀 at me and clearly tried to say “Goodmmmmm”. I almost lost it!!!❤!!!❤ We went on to breakfast. We had some lows, many highs, and the school day was over. “I see 👀 a difference in my child already!😄” These were the words her mother spoke to me and my team after school. She went on to say how her child is spending more time with the family eating at the table🍨, interacting in family activities🎉, and watching videos with them👀. She explained how happy her daughter seems now and how well she is learning to express herself at home. She still explores the home but doesn't run away from the family. Her family is amazed with her progress🎉🎉🎉. I remember her mom and dad telling me on open house night that she is a picky eater and doesn't play with toys. Now she plays with toys and is quite an eater. Well, she required a prompt this morning to eat her breakfast but me and my team were like, nah we wouldn't try to eat it either😂😂😂. So she chose the fruit cup😂 and ate it like a big girl. This is the same sweetie who for the first week and half of school only cried😢, screamed😭, and bit herself😬😱. Now she's a relaxed butterfly✨and we've only been in school for 3 weeks a 2 days.

As a nation we are encountering many highs and lows and as a teacher I feel encouraged by my role to introduce my students to positive reflections of what we are supposed be. We are supposed to be kind and supportive of eachother. This weeks community helper theme is a police officer🚔. Yes, I had a discussion with each of my parents to avoid any negative press or discussions about law enforcement🚓. We want our kids to be safe not fearful. They agreed and today was an extremely positive day for theme introduction and data collection. Our neighborhood police officers🚨 will visit with our class this week and everyone is so excited🎉🎉. I guess I better head over and wait for the 👀 “HOT NOW🔥” sign at Krispy Kreme in the morning because my little ones put the coffee pot on top of the shelf😂😂😂 It’s funny how even they know that coffee and donuts are a treat.

There are many great free resources on her site. Check them out and review them carefully for your lessons.👍

In this picture are two of my joys. One is my son and the other is my student. I had a typical teacher day filled with lows and multiple high praises. 👊👍😄
So I saw the most amazing thing this morning!!!❤! I saw one of my students running around the corner of the school and his mom was running behind him not in fear 😱 but in happiness 😄. When our eyes locked on eachother we began to yell and cheer.  I yelled, Yay its a school day!” He picked up the pace while laughing all the way to me. I greeted him with an eye level good morning and he responded with his best verbal response while giving me good eye contact. His mom took a few breaths and said, “He ran🏃 from the door of our home to here when I told him he was going to school.” I cheered as my thoughts returned to a time when this same kid would completely ignore my presence when I’d greet him. He’d wag his finger 👆and yell, “Nooooo💭” to practically everything I’d say. I am amazed by his progress💎. This example today is the very reason why I say to myself every day, “This is the day, this is the day that I will see a change💬.”

As I watch 👀my little ones walk in line to join their families at the end of the day, I am filled with joy because I can't wait to tell them the magnificent 🌟things their child has learned and said that day. The parents stand patiently waiting for our team to speak with them to provide details, new PECS pictures (vocabulary) to add to their books, and reenact the learning experience for them (I like this part because I can get very animated😂). This is a pivotal role for our team👍. Parents of children with special needs desire so much to hear 👂the positives of their children. I can remember the personal frustrations🔥I had waiting for the positives about my son from his teachers when he was in kindergarten. Yeah, I already knew the negatives👎. I would say to myself, “Please tell me something good😯.”I needed to hear about the break through, the strategies, and manipulatives I needed to build on the greatness he had inside✨. However, my son had a great prek teacher. Her inspiration for her students has empowered me to always supply that feeling of joy to my students’ parents, as well😀. Parents need that feeling👍. Help don't hurt. Respect don't shun. Be understanding of others and respond with kindness. You don't know how many tears those parents have shed for their child.  We teach them for only a short period of the day so try to inspire ongoing progress within that time. It is a battle🔥but it is worth it💝
Example: Jackson did not throw the toy cars. He replaced that behavior with rolling them.😂😀

So am I the only one whose still digging and organizing for my students?😕 Everything is already in place but I find it funny how I still like to analyze and rearrange my materials and furniture to remedy simple concerns. It isn't a negative chore for me it is a necessity for the safety and sanity of my classroom. You’d think that our little ones would reject the change but they welcome it because it makes transitions smoother in our learning environment. 👍
Teachers, I know that you have the most beautiful decorations for your class but ask yourself these questions daily as you observe your students moving about your classroom: 
1. Is it safe?
2. Are the students and team members able to easily transition from one area to the next?
3. Are my materials and reinforcers easily accessible for our needs?
😕😯👍☺
If you find that you need to make changes, make them with no regrets👍😊.
You're bound to reap the benefits of the change✏📚📒😃

It doesn't hurt to speak. Saying, “Hi” or “Good Morning” will not take away from your shine. But, it can make you shine brighter🌟. I'm just so thankful to be able to shine and overcome. Remember when people make it a point to not speak😔, don't fret. It can be used as a method of control and (adult) bullying. What you don't realize is that they are hiding their hatred that way. This should motivate you to shine brighter 🌟 to live happier😀 and keep moving forward👍. Often times they are going through something. They might be ill with no family or in financial distress and find it odd that you're still smiling and moving forward through diversity and stress. 
I've seen them plot the destruction of others only to see it backfire and devour them😕. Its sad but they don't realize that their hate😡 is a method to motivate. You will always thrive😎 in these situations. So when they don't respond to your salutation (hi, good morning, how are you, etc.) whisper as you continue to walk away, “Thank you for blessing me to shine even brighter🌟 for being kind to you.”

Alright my data wall is all set to go 👍😌thanks to Michaela @especiallyeducation ❤
I kid you not, my original system was effective but not as put together. This is such an awesome resource that can be used by any of my team members, any sped teachers, any speech pathologists, OT, PT, etc. 😁This is a fully data driven resource that is easy to use. 😀My kidney table is right in front of this wall. Therefore, I’m able to quickly collect data use @MyTeachingStrategiesApp and be on top of my students ongoing progress. 👍😀😁I’m in love with this resource.💘

Therefore, I’m able to quickly collect data use @MyTeachingStrategiesApp and be on top of my students ongoing progress. 👍😀😁I’m in love with this resource.💘 #specialedprek  #earlyintervention  #respectmylife  #spedteacher  #autism  #specialeducation  #teacherlife  #weteachsped  #specialneedsmomsandteacher  #autismprek  #aspergermom  #autismeveryday  #autismsuperheroes  #kidsprogramprek  #iteachprek  #autismclassroom

I love PECS❤. My team and I enjoy watching our students progress using PECS. But, the best time to witness their progress is during snack time. The children get so excited being able to choose their snack. It also aids in teaching exchanging items, pointing, and ultimately reading.

Friday was open house at our school and this is the sign that we hung on the door😍. As I look at this @dollartree teacher resource I am extremely grateful👍. I’m grateful for several reasons but most importantly is that I’m able to provide support to children like my son. I was a sped teacher for 7 years before I became a mom😍. I remembered the looks I would get when parents were referred to me by childfind to do ed testing on their babies. I would hold their hand and explain the results and offer my recommendations😔. It was hard for me to realize that  I pretty much had to hold my own hand and lay out the results when I determined that my son had areas of concern😥. The blessing is that I had my faith and a prayerful 🙏husband to keep me sane.  Our son, Christian, was different from every baby 🚼 I’d ever met. When it was time for him to attend school I was so fearful of him having a teacher that didn't understand him. In fact, he had the best teacher. She took time to really understand my son and taught me things that I was deemed an expert in within my profession. His teacher changed our lives and so I am ready to continue doing the same for my awesome students and their families💕. It isn't easy but I can do it👍. Every child is unique. It is my goal to teach my students the way that I want others to teach my own: with enthusiasm💕, respect💕, patience💕, and love💕. #earlyintervention #teacherlife #specialedprek #lifeofateacher  #specialeducationteacher #earlychildhoodeducation #ecse #KIDSprogram #respectmylife #spedteacher #autismteacher

My heart is so proud of you Lincoln! First day of second grade! (We kept him in second so he can have an easier transition into general education, he has his same teacher as last year!🙌🏼)

My son ❤ loves using his phone 📞 to take selfies with his siblings. Its so hard to believe how much I mourned 😫 the loss of him when I realized that he was on the spectrum. I watched him transform into a child that I didn't know. All I wanted was my baby back. Being a special educator 😉 for 7 years before his birth did not make his diagnosis any easier for us 😒. We thought that we were ready to face it. And yet, we still weren't prepared. A wonderful autism parent @thenatashabarber 😍 sent out a post yesterday. This post rocked me to the core of my being. It read, “You might be an Autism Parent if one of your biggest fears is...” I couldn't respond because I know that I can't make myself think💡 about my fears. Me and my family have learned to be focused not fearful. Our worries for today are enough. I spent all of his toddler years on my knees 🙏 that I forgot to stand up and live. God was giving me the answer but I was so stuck on my fears that I became blind to our reality. Reaching and pleading for the support of the world like the woman with an issue of blood, I was spiritually bleeding and no one could heal my wounds. But then one day, I returned to faith over fear. I got off my knees and began to live. Therefore, I stopped being concerned about gossip, confusion, and unwarranted advice. I tuned out the naysayers. Now our focus, not our fear, is to make sure that we provide a strong foundation for all of our children. It is not easy for any parent especially parents of a child with special needs but we're doing it! We're handling it one day at a time.  Don't get me wrong, we do plan for their future, we just don't spend time worrying about it the way we used to.

Linc has taken it upon himself to hide under a blanket whenever we are in the car now. Cause tornadoes in Missouri have scarred him for life and now he gets worried at even the sight of a cloud. He made me giggle this morning. ☺️

Once every few months it hits me so hard it knocks the breath out of me. The stress of being strong for so long, reaches its threshold and overflows in tears. Sadly, it's usually provoked on days when he is exceptional. The words flow so easily and clearly from him, no forced social communication. I can see who he is when his autism doesn't restrict him. It's beautiful and a bittersweet reminder as autism takes him away again. Special needs parents are often told they are strong. That "I can't imagine having to do that." But we are not superhuman. We feel and we cry when no one is watching (sometimes when everyone is watching) and it is so damn hard. And so damn easy. Because the tears are not regret or resentment. It is love pouring from our souls, carrying us on to continue giving our all for our children. All of me loves all of you Linc. 💙 #autismmom #specialneedsmom

One of the fun things about autism, is at 8, Linc still loves the Backyardigans. It's kinda like being able to go back in time. ☺️ Thankfully, Linc has good taste in kids shows. I have every song from every episode ever memorized. #wereyourbackyardfriends

Since Fidget Spinners are all the rage, I figured I should hop on board. They are supposed to be stress relieving tools and help people with autism, ADHD, etc focus more easily. 
Gotta say, I tried it and I totally get why it became so popular. It's the same kinda feeling you get pop bubble wrap. ☺️ Either way, let's give it up for spreading more #autismawareness. 💙

I rarely get to go shopping alone with the big kid. When he was little, taking him out was nearly impossible and now it's something that brings me joy. Especially when a girl from school recognizes him and says hi to him.  Autism life can be hard, but it really makes you appreciate the little things. 💙

This kid!
Recently, I had a discussion with Mikey and asked if he understood why we do videos for #AutismSuperheroes...he didn't. I then went on to explain "what is autism" and the fact that he has autism. I pointed out his unique strengths and abilities that autistic kids have.
Guess what his response was?!
"Cool."
He nailed it!! It is cool! It doesn't faze him one bit. He is who he is....funny, smiles all the time, greatest laugh ever (#johnlasseter needs to hear his laugh), gives the biggest hugs and has a big heart!

Words will never do this moment justice. My sweet boy, who until this school, struggled to sit in any assembly, sang and danced in the Spring concert with the other 2nd graders. As an autism mom, this is one of those moments that I have worked so hard to help Lincoln achieve, but was prepared for the very real likelihood that it may never happen. I ugly cried. Hard. This school, his teachers, aides, everyone who has ever loved on him, worked with him and helped bring him to this place. You'll never know how grateful my heart is to you all. #autism #scaalltheway

One of the best techniques to help calm Linc that Occupational Therapy taught us. If he ever gets really upset or anxious, you'll likely see me give him a "squeeze hug" and scratch his arms, back, head and legs. 💙 #worldautismawarenessday

One of the first books Lincoln became obsessed with reading was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. From there, his love of cocoons and the caterpillar metamorphosis grew.  I find the ideal of this change from caterpillar to butterfly poetic with Lincoln's journey he goes through with autism.  He is just a caterpillar waiting for his wings to grow.
