Tasha's Introduction and an Awesome Giveaway!!

Hey everyone!

My name is Tasha and I live in Tennessee. I graduated from Western Governors University (online school) in December of 2012. I have a B.A. in Special Education K-12 and Elementary Education K-6. 

During student teaching, I worked 8 weeks in a 2nd grade setting and 8 weeks in a resource setting for grades 7-12. Even though I am certified in both areas, my heart is with children that have special needs. 

Upon graduating, I became a full time substitute in an extended resource room for grades K-1. This is where I gained most of my experience. I worked with children that had varying disabilities. I have experience with the needs of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dandy Walker Syndrome, Shaken Baby Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, seizures, sensory disorders, and severe learning disabilities. My heart bleeds for these children.

I will begin my first position as an “actual” teacher this fall. I will be the resource teacher for grades 2-6, so I will be working with students that are capable of being in the regular classroom setting. In December, I will hopefully be transferred to extended resource for grades 4-6.

I spend my free time singing, learning the piano, walking, and enjoying life with my sweet husband and black pug. I am truly one blessed gal!

I am the author of the blog, A Tender Teacher for Special Needs. I am so excited to now be a contributor to this blog! I know I will learn a lot from these fabulous teachers, and I can’t wait to connect with other wonderful teachers and bloggers!

We have added a priced TpT item on our blog, as a freebie, to show our appreciation to our followers. My free product is an “All About Me” coloring booklet. It’s a fun back-to-school activity that young students will enjoy working on. After you've “liked” The Learning Highway on Facebook and followed me on Teachers Pay Teachers, please help yourself to the “All About Me” coloring booklet.

We are also having a giveaway to kickoff our blog! Each of us has donated from our TpT store. Please enter below!
