About Me


Hi! I'm Sarah! I have several years under my belt as an Intervention Specialist. I've taught K-4th grade Autism Only Classrooms, I've also taught in a K-4th grade Multiple Disabilities Classroom and in a 3rd-7th grade MD classroom. I now have found myself in Special Education Administration by the nudging of my supervisors. This is my second year in special education administration, and hoping to continue to make sure all of our friends with disabilities get the services and support they need to be successful! 
Feel free to look around my blog.

  2. Hello, I am a brand new teacher and I will be teaching a Structured learning class 3, 4, 5. I have all kinds of ideas but right now I am trying to figure out how to set up a schedule. I have not taught an only Autism classroom before, so I guess my question is what are the key elements I should focus on, on a daily basis?

    1. Hi Maegan!
      First of, congratulations! Getting hired is a great accomplishment! Structured teaching is actually how I ran my Autism classroom. I don't have a blog post on that specifically, but visuals are great. Boardmaker and Smarty Symbols are great for helping to plot out your daily schedule. Keeping it routine is great too. Routine, Social Skills, and Structured Work Tasks. Self Guided Work is also great. Peer Buddies are great too. I am going to blog about them in August! I've got plenty of resources in my TpT store too, which should help you out.

      Another blog which is jammed pack with great Autism Classroom Ideas is Autism Classroom News and Resources. Chris is the Author of that Blog and is a fountain of best practices and information in working with students with Autism. Happy teaching! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to email me!
