I love a child with Autism

Welcome to our class website!  There will be a lot of great and useful information posted here; but, first let's talk about our awesome school Still Elementary!
Still Elementary is in beautiful Powder Springs, GA.  The town name changed from Springville in 1859 when is was often referred to as "Gunpowder Springs" due to the seven springs within the city limits that are rich with 26 minerals which turn the surrounding sand as dark as gunpowder.  Still Elementary is a wonderful school with a very inclusive environment for special education and is noted as holding the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program for the Western half of the county.  I think Still is pretty special because I loved it when I was a little Still eagle myself during my elementary years!  Below is our cool new school logo to support our feeder high school the Hillgrove Hawks, our two fantastic administrator Mrs. Fielder (Asst. Principal) and Mrs. Manharth (Principal), and a big giant thank you banner for Home Depot who recently came out and spruced up our grounds and made us look pretty again!

I'm so proud to be an eagle at heart and to call Still my home.  I have been teaching the K-2 Autism class at Still for three years and absolutely love it!  In my free time, (though I get little of it) I love to read, craft, get sucked into TV series with my hubby, ride my bike at the beautiful Big Creek Greenway, and I've committed to running one 5K a month for the year, so I guess I kinda enjoy that as well.  My husband and I love pets!  We have four cats and two dogs and I'm convinced we need a lot of land so we can run a dog rescue; but, how could I ever leave my students?

Our class is so unique-just like the kiddos in it!  We include kindergarten through second graders with Autism who need Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Discrete Trial Instruction (DTI) to meet their specific academic, social, sensory, and behavioral needs.  We cover general education standards in a smaller setting and as you may know the standards we teach changed this year to the Common Core.
