It's a new school year!

WOW....the summer is officially over and I hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. We have had a busy August learning about our new school friends and getting adjusted to the new routine. During the month of September we will be learning about transportation and some community helpers. Music therapy will start this week for children in the PALS Program, RISE Classrooms and First Class Rooms.

Back to School

Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!  We are so excited to be moved into our new building on the campus of the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  I plan to use this blog to keep in touch with parents and community members about happenings at the UAH Early Learning Center & RISE School.  Look for (hopefully) weekly posts about what is going on in our classrooms.

I LOVE to blog stalk and don't post very often (working on that this year), well, I headed over to April Larremore's blog Chalk Talk at and read the MOST EXCITING news......(insert drum roll here)......She is now going to be blogging about Pre-K!  Her new job is a pre-k instructional specialist. 
I am thrilled to hear this news!
 I have been a preschool special education teacher  for 17 years (autism/preschool resource specialist for a couple of those)!!
I guess you can say this has inspired me to find the time to share things I do in my classroom.  Hoping to download some pictures from this week soon and get the posting party started!
