    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!
