Working overtime is something I KNOW my teachers do. They put in more than what's required to make Sam's classroom time productive and constructive and appropriate. Years ago the boys in Room 10 started painting and packaging blank card sets. Mrs. Reiss's husband even made them table top easels to make is easier. HCIT? The cards are sold at school events to make money for various things like flowers to plant in front of the school each Spring.
Here is Sam with Miss Julie and Mrs. Reiss on SATURDAY (can you say overtime?) at our local church xmas craft sale, selling the Room 10 cards. It's been an annual event for us, and is a terrific 'real world' experience. Life Skills. Should be something we all have to learn while in school, don't you think?
Mrs. Reiss was even there on crutches! Thanks Maureen and Julie for your OVERTIME. And thanks to Mr. Dave and Miss Brenda too - and all the teachers who go the extra mile for our boys. Self-contained classroom is hardly the fitting label for OUR class.
