Meet Mrs. Dixon

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 / 5 comments
Hello there!

I am an elementary Autism teacher. I absolutely ADORE my job!

I thrive on the day-to-day challenges I face and I'm addicted to scouring the internet for resources, ideas, and any information at all I can find that will help me overcome those challenges while also helping me meet the needs of my students. In the past, I served students with all types of disabilities in their own classrooms {co-teaching} as well as my own classroom {resource room}. 

Starting out, I went everywhere for advice for my first year of teaching, and even in my third year I feel that I still have so much to learn. Education is truly always evolving, and if you decide to stay current with new strategies and ideas, amazing things can happen. I decided to blog to not only serve as an outlet to express my own growth as an educator, but to also serve as a resource for new and veteran teachers out there who are constantly on the search for something new to try with their students. When I find something that works for me or my students, I love sharing it with all my teacher friends, and now I want to share it with you. 

Through this blog, I plan to share my own teaching strategies as well as the ones I have “borrowed” from others (while crediting them, of course), bargains I find (usually at Target), & any D-I-Y project I create for my classroom. I will also try to share as many organizational tricks I’ve learned through my experiences with special education, because I know juggling all the paperwork at first can be overwhelming. 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Grab a cup of coffee & enjoy :)
