Hello! My name is Karen Bradford. For many years I was a substitute teacher in both public and private schools. From those experiences, I wrote Subology: A Substitute Teacher's Guide to Successful Days. It is a is the instructional resource substitute teachers beginning their career need to educate, enlighten, empower, and completely prepare them for a day of teaching in Kindergarten to twelfth grade classrooms. Now, I teach students with autism. Working with these students brings me a joy I never felt in typical classrooms. I am always happy to see them and have them in class. I am still relatively new at teaching students with autism, so if anyone has any advice or words of wisdom, I would love to hear them. I wish everyone happy and successful days!

Great to have you with us, and how wonderful that you found your calling. Congratulations!

Also, be sure to check out the Special Ed group, as I know there are a few teachers who work with students with autism there as well:
