Why I Started Autism Adventures ??
My name is Melissa and I am in my seventh year teaching a third-sixth grade severely handicapped class. I decided to start this blog to share all of my ideas and creations I have implemented in my classroom with other teachers. I believe that teachers need to work together to develop the curriculum to help our student's succeed. Never in a million years could I have anticipated the amount of friendships I would make through the blog community. The followers and friends I have gained is astonishing. I look forward to the emails I get, the feedback I get and the questions I get. I love communicating with those around me to make our education system a little better each day. Together, WE can make a difference in our student's lives!
Every day is an adventure in Room 83!
My Education Background
I get a lot of questions about my education. I got my bachelors degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Long Beach. I currently have two California teaching credentials: Education Specialist- Moderate/Severe Disabilities and I also have a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Most recently I got my certificate in Assistive Technology and Augmentative and Alternative Communication. These two certificates allow me to better teach my students who have speech and language deficits. With this rich knowledge in communication, I am able to better create materials for those students that need to use another mean for communication.
My Personal Life!
I live happily in Long Beach with my husband. We have been married for two years! We spend our time together going to the beach and enjoying the sun! We also love to travel- some of our favorites have been Hawaii, Tahiti & Moorea and Spain. We can't wait to plan a trip to Thailand!
