I thought I was good in Math…


In school I won awards in math.  Somewhere in this house I have an album with all the awards and certificates I won in Math.  I took Honors Calculus, what they call AP Calculus now and received College Credit from my AP score.  I don’t necessarily use algebra or calculus at work but I do […]

Engaged learning is key


First of all- I hope all are well in the path of #Sandy.  I had heard bits and pieces about it at work but I received an entire download of information from Sheldon when I came home.  Between his friends on the East Coast and YouTube he was well versed and was very interested in […]

Interesting 24 hours with #Aspies

Interesting 24 hours with #Aspies


The past 24 hours have really been something.  Not bad, not good, but lots of Aspie moments… Monday Night I came home from work and my son was not in his “other room”.  Odd since he went to bed before I left for work so I figured he would be up playing video games.  I […]

Twice Exceptional = Twice Screwed


I really like the name Twice Exceptional.  Probably because it doesn’t have any bad connotations to it yet.  Special or special needs shouldn’t have a bad connotation either but lets face it, those titles unfortunately do. I was recently in a store and the cashier was having trouble and commented “don’t mind me, I’m special!” […]

Fun with Science at 3AM!


So the great thing about doing online school is that it can be done at any time, day, evenings, weekends, or 3 AM! He has been having a really bad week with sleeping again which has made school work difficult this week. I have been trying to work with him and understand when he is […]
