My name is Ann Valenzon.  I am a teacher for students with special needs.  I have been in the classroom for more than 10 years now in a variety of settings from kindergarten to 8th grade.  Through the years, there have been a lot of challenges and a great deal of successes.  My unofficial motto is “no challenge to big, no victory to small.”  I am starting this blog to be real and give not only insight into my classroom, but also a broader perspective.

In researching blogs, I started reading several blogs related to education and  more specifically, special education.  I found one that I related to more than others.  The teacher like me has been teaching for a while.  And like me she is feeling a little burn out.  I keep hoping this burn out I am feeling is related to the rapidly approaching summer not the education field itself!!

I want to use this blog as a tool to recharge my love for education.  I am hopeful to make changes in special education, impact my students to success and to inspire other educators.  I want to share my knowledge of skills and strategies of educating in the classroom and transform myself into an educational consultant and FAPE coordinator.
