Hello
I'm CHRISTA JOY
Teacher. Mother. Wife.
I wasn’t supposed to be a teacher. I spent 8 years after high school pursing my dream of becoming a veterinarian. I graduated from North Carolina School of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. I then spent the next two years living my dream and working with all kinds of loved furry family members.Then, in 1997, my son was born. A short 20 months later, we realized something was not right. He was diagnosed with autism and my entire life changed. I left my beloved career and spent every waking minute learning all I could to try and “save” my son. Along the way, I developed a deep love for these special kids and their families and realized I wanted to spend the rest of my life helping them find their way and maximize their potential.

It's so nice to provide a lesson that introduces my students to what other kids in the school are doing. Thanks for this resource!

I used this unit as the foundation for my observation this year. It went great, and my supervisor loved it! There is a nice balance between adaptations and content, and my students really picked up the vocabulary well. Thank you!
