I teach students who are 14 years old until they are 22 years old. I teach Math (specifically Algebra A, Algebra B, Geometry, and Liberal Math - these rotate every year), Science (Biology, Earth Space, Chemistry - these rotate every year), Career Education, and Post Adult Living. Prior to my current assignment I taught students with Autism at the middle school level.
My students abilities vary but most of my worksheets are at the elementary school level, using my students appropriate access point (Florida standards for students with special needs), while being age respectful to my students. I try to do mostly hands on learning that incorporates my students interests. I think it is important to make learning meaningful to my students.

I have a very rambunctious two year old (will be three 8/18/17) at home who keeps me busy while I am on breaks and after school. I try to create items that I can use as enrichment opportunities for her too and I might include some of those in my store Visit my store's Facebook page for the most up to date information: https://www.facebook.com/CouturesAutismClassroom/ .
