Been enjoying the cooler SD weather. It was great to finally get out of the house. Had an enjoyable week of VBS with the kids, time with extended family, and Emeline can ride a 2 wheel bike now with no training wheels! What a wonderful weekend, too bad it has to end so soon. :)

I was finally placed in a moderate to severe classroom and I just love it!!! It is a new school in Chula Vista grades K-6. There are only 3 special ed classrooms on campus. The teacher I am assigned to is a man who is very kind and a bit laid back. His philosopy is every kid can learn. The kids I am working with are 3rd-6th graders and have a range of disabilities from blindness, orthopedic impaired, autism, mental retardation. There are 11 kids total and there are 4 aides in the room. Basicly we teach beginning academics at a Kindergarten and 1st grade level. I have always wanted to teach Kindergarten!! Each day I get assigned a bit more of the teaching responsibilities. Like I said I already fell in love with the class and kids and am so excited to be fulfilling my passion.
