I found out this afternoon that I am one of the four finalists for our school's teacher of the year! I took this with my cell phone because I didn't have my camera and I was hurrying out the door to get to class.
I am Nicole, a 30-something year old PhD student (not for long! One class and my dissertation left to go). This is my 8th year teaching students with autism in a self contained special education class.
