    My classroom is in the urban area of Philadelphia. My students consist of Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. My students are on the spectrum of Autism and love to learn! Actually, their educational growth is a revolving door! It is exciting experience to keep them motivated and eager to learn!

It was extremely disappointing to see people climbing our Christmas tree in Marconi Plaza on Eagles parade day. It was completely irresponsible to climb a tree that cannot support the weight of people on its branches and, parents, you should be ashamed of yourself for encouraging your children to do this. We had a wonderful Christmas celebration in December with this tree and we hope that the neighborhood appreciates our efforts to promote a warm community spirit.
