About a month ago, I got an email about this wonderful book and when I read what it was about, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to review the book. This book, about a special education teacher in Philadelphia Public Schools, is such an inspiration. If you are raising a child with a disability or […]

What if I told you that Mother’s Day isn’t always such a treat for me? Of course, I love my children and I am blessed in unfathomable ways, but there is also a deep-rooted part of me that wants to curl up in a ball and sleep the day away. In fact, that’s what I […]

Having a child with special needs requires special considerations. Your child may learn differently or behave differently from other children. It’s always important to find effective ways to engage with your child so that you can encourage their development. When you have a special needs child, accomplishing this can require the assistance of some particular […]
Sometimes the things I experience in my job infuriate me from the standpoint of a parent. Have the two roles–parent and teacher–certainly creates challenges for me for many reasons. I am a Special Education Teacher. Because this is my job, I am aware of the ins and outs of the program. I am also acutely […]
The longer I work in special education and the older I get, the more I long to do what’s right for my students and the braver my voice gets. Part of my job is to advocate for what’s right for my students. My opinions are not always popular with the parents. Sometimes the parents like […]
It takes a special kind of person to teach special education when you have a special needs child of your own. That’s what I hear most often when parents or other teachers hear that I not only teach special education but have a child with Autism. What they don’t realize is that I didn’t choose […]

Some days I think that this parenting gig has not turned out quite the way I imagined it would. I love both my children equally, but Squeaker definitely gives us more to do than Big Guy does. I’m not sure at what point, if any, this will change, but we keep working at it. I […]
Those words are the ones I hear the most often once people know that I have a child with Autism, a 2.5 year old, that I’m a special education teacher, and that I’m a wife. “I don’t know how you do it.” The argument for my supermomness is that I’m a wife, a mom, I […]
