My Wheels are Turning!

I had the opportunity to visit an early childhood special needs classroom this afternoon to visit a student that will be in my classroom in the fall.  It was fun to see this different environment and to meet her in her surroundings.

I am so excited to begin this new journey with her next year.  I know this sweet smiling face is going to teach me in so many amazing ways and I can't wait!
