Aloha from Angelia!

I have everyone!  I'm so excited to be posting here at A Special Sparkle.  I'm Angelia and you may know me from my blog, Extra Special Teaching.


I've been teaching special education for the last 3 years.  I've taught resource and self-contained special education students in grades K-3.  I've worked with students diagnosed with Autism, Specific Learning Disability, Traumatic Brain Injury, Other Health Impairment, Intellectual Disability, and Emotional/Behavior Disorder.

My family just moved to Hawaii in December 2012.

We get the privilege of living here, because my husband is a Marine. 


I also spent 10 years in the Marine Corps but got out when I got pregnant with triplets!  These awesome kiddos are now 7-years-old and will be in 2nd grade this coming school year.  


Not only do I have this great trio of kids, I have two older girls.  My oldest just graduated high school this June.  She's off living in her own apartment and about to start school this fall.  Unbelievable how fast she has grown up.


And last but not least, this 14-year-old keeps me on my toes.


And if you haven't noticed, I like to wear stripes!  :)

I look forward to collaborating here with some other great teachers of students with special needs!

    1. Busy is an understatement! LOL. But the good news is that they always have someone else for playing. :)

    1. How cool that you are a triplet! I haven't met too many triplets and definitely no grown up ones!

  3. Angelia, Hawaii is beautiful but I know that places like that can be difficult to teach in. And with triplets I can't believe you have the time to blog. I love your blog and am really looking forward to learning from everyone on this site!

    1. It's definitely been a different experience here. The education system is much different than what I've experienced in the past.
