I want to share my why. I grew up in a school district that got it right. They believed in equitable, inclusive education. As an elementary student I was exposed to students that were different, that learned different, that looked different, and because of this exposure I had a desire to work with students with disabilities. Along the way I had examples of amazing educators who loved what they did and advocated for their students, and I wanted to be that. Here we are today and I just finished my 5th year of teaching. What is your why? Why do you teach? If you aren’t a teacher, do you remember a teacher who impacted you the most? What about that made that impact? . . . . # A D #HonestyInEducation #EdScare #BannedBookChallenge #LetThemLearn #WeSayGay #DontBanBlack #AmericansAgainstCensorship #KnowBetterBeBetter #teachersforchange #educatorsagainstgunviolence #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife #specialeducation #speducator #iteachsped #iteach #texasteacher #texasteachersforchange

✨Sparkly girl summer✨ Who needs hot girls' summer when you can have sparkly girl summer? Sparkly girl, summer means living life like every day is your birthday! Taking the trip, staying out later than you should, celebrating the small and mundane, and leaving a little sparkle everywhere you go! Yes, I plan to continue to share educational content or the “SPED” half of SparklesandSped, but after the year I had with my car accident and everything that came with teaching in 2022, I am here to bring a little more sparkle and fun to your feed! I hope you will join me in having your own version of a sparkly girl summer! What’s one thing that would make your summer a sparkly girl summer? . . . . . #summerofsparkle #sparklygirlsummer #sparkles #shinebright #lifesaparty #austinblogger #austininfluencer #livethelittlethings #teacheroffduty #teacheronsummerbreak #dallasmural #dallasmurals #imextra #austininfluencers #atx #summer2022

While this teacher might be on summer break, that won’t stop me from continuing my education. As a special education teacher, it’s so important to stay up to date with the most current research, and that’s why I love ChildCare Education Institute. @cceionline is a convenient option for educators to further their professional development right from the comfort of their couch! @cceionline offers 150+ courses in English and Spanish! Here are the courses I took: - SPN106: An Introduction to Inclusion and Children with Special Needs - SPN107: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - SPN101: Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder These are great introductory courses for instructional assistants, general education and elective teachers or volunteers who want to familiarize themselves with best practices for working with students with disabilities. All three courses provide specific strategies for teaching children with the perspective disorder. New @cceionline users can access a free trial course now until 6/30/22 — PROF105: Adult Learning: Theories and Strategies for Trainers, Coaches, and Directors. This course discusses how to encourage and engage adult learners. What are some other topics you want to learn more about?

I think I did more in my first weekend of summer break than I did most months this year. It's crazy how quickly the stress of the school year melts away, and I feel like I can finally relax! . . . Does anyone else feel like a different person in the summer? . . . . . #memorialdayweekend #teacheronsummerbreak #teacheroffduty #texasteacher #teachersoftexas #lakeday #bestfriends #cutepic #austintx #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #teachersfollowteachers #photoinspiration #summerofsparkle #sparklygirlsummer

🍔Happy National Burger Day🍔 To celebrate, I am sharing all my favorite mouth-watering favorites in and around Austin! Make sure you save this post for the next time you are craving one! @oinkmobile - Located at The Good Lot in Cedar Park, the 50/50 burger is hands down my favorite burger around. 50% Bacon, 50% beef, and 100% mouth-watering goodness; this burger is topped with bourbon bacon jam, house-made aioli, white American cheese, and shredded lettuce. @hopdoddy - with multiple locations throughout Texas and the US, all their burgers are delicious. Still, my go-to is their Bacon Jam DoubleTwo 1/4 lb beef patties topped with both white & yellow American cheeses, house-made tomato bacon jam, mustard grilled onions & pickled mayo. @plow_burger - with multiple locations offering Plant-based burgers. With delicious meat alternatives, give their classic plow burger a try. @jewboyburgers - participating in this weekends @dineforuvalde on Sunday, May 29th. A delicious take on burgers with a Mexican and Jewish spin. Make sure to check out their Oy Vay Guey burger and their Yenta burger. @loroeats - South Lamar, when at this popular Asian smokehouse, make sure to try the loro cheeseburger, and while not technically a burger, the Oak Smoked Beef Brisket sandwich is a must! @atxsliders @40northpizza @tlcaustin @poolburgeraustin @buddysburgeratx . . #austinfoodie #yelpaustin #happynationalburgerday #512bites #austin101 #austinfood #austinlife #keepaustineatin #igtexas #burgerlover #hamburger #cheeseburger #bestburgerinaustin #eataustin #austineats #austintexas #austininfluencer

THIS HAS TO STOP.... 18 children won't be having class parties and enjoying the start of summer this week. How are we here? How are we still allowing this to happen? How are we all so desensitized as Americans and educators that what happened today in Texas does not have us all in tears? I don't have the words but all I wanted to say this I will do whatever it takes as a teacher to help prevent this doesn't happen in the future. I don't know what that means or looks like, but I will be doing more than hoping and praying....

What better way to close out National Brunch Month than with a punched-up mimosa punch bowl at the domain with your girls? I love punch bowl social for happy hour for fun nights out but had never thought about going for brunch. After we stuffed our bellies, we did some karaoke and played corn holes. It was the perfect Sunday Funday! Their brunch is every Saturday and Sunday from 10-3 Our favs on the menu 🍾Mimosa punch bowl ( duh) 🍳Biscuits and gravy 🍞Bread pudding french toast 🥑The avocado toast 🥙Superfood grain bowl #Austineats #512bites #austintexas #austinfoodies #austinbrunch #domainnorthside #keepaustineatin #365thingsaustin #whattodoin512 #punhbowlsocial #punhbowlsocialdomain #eatdrinksocial #austininfluencer #foodiesofinstagram #teacheroffduty #brunchin #mimosa #punchbowl

☀️Be someone’s sunshine today!☀️ This is your mid-week reminder to love the people around you! I know as educators we are all beyond exhausted and counting down the days till summer (I’m right there with you). Especially now we could all use some extra moments of sunshine. Want to bring a little extra sunshine and help us build more inclusive playgrounds? The Ables Fables tee of the month collection is donating all year long to build new playgrounds across the US. They have several designs and colors available, including the one I’m wearing here! There are limited quantities, and this design will not be restocked, so grab it before it’s gone! (Link in bio @theablefables ) For every “Human Loving Human” shirt sold, The Able Fables is donating $5 to help build Ellie G’s Dream World, an inclusive playground in Franklin, TN. Their donation goal is $5,000, and they’re already so close! #inclusiveplayground #inclusiveplay #inclusion #diversity #disabilityawareness #equitynotequality #humanlovinghuman #fundraiser #theablefables #teachersofinstagram #teacherssupportteachers #teacherspayteachers #teachersfollowteachers #speducator #teacherlife #texasteacher #EOY #EOYcountdown #teacheroffduty #targetteachers

It takes a village, and it's essential to thank that village! Throughout the school year, there are a dozen or so different staff appreciation days, from librarian to bus driver to admin; every one of these individuals is such a vital piece of the puzzle. . . . I created a BIG bundle of staff appreciation cards, so you don't have to! The bundle is the same style as my other cards, with visual support for early learners and learners with disabilities. . . . Head over to my tpt to snag the bundle for yourself! . . . . . . #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #teacherssupportteachers #texasteachers #adaptedart #thankyoucards #teacherappreciation #staffappreciation #iteachk #iteachfirst #spedteacher #austintexas #austininfluencer

Happy Autism awareness and acceptance month, But really? How is it that in 2022 we haven't progressed past a month dedicated to awareness and acceptance of something that affects 1 in every 44 children in the US? We expect Autistic people to conform to what we think is “normal.” We ask them to adapt to our world, but have we ever tried to adapt to theirs? I hope that we can move beyond a month of singling out a group as different to finding ways to welcome each other's uniqueness. . . . . . #redinstead #happyautismacceptancemonth #iteachsped #Texasteacher #teachersoftexas #iteachtoo #speducator #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #teacherssupportteachers #tiredteacher #austin #iteachk #iteachfirst #iteach2nd #austininfluencer #neurodiversity #celebratenuerodiversity

As an educator in 2022, I resonated so much with this @elarroyo_atx sign. As educators, we come to love and teach and bring the “the good.” It’s easy to feel like we aren’t doing enough, being enough, and I’m here to tell you YOU ARE ENOUGH. We have all gone through a rough two years, and it’s brocken a majority of us. It's shattered our already broken education system, a breaking I honestly don’t know if we can come back from, but with just two months of school left, please remember that your “good” is enough! Today after walking into my classroom from a meeting, one of my students who had been disrespectful all morning ran up to me and said, “Ms.Marisa, I missed you.” Her tight hug and excitement to see me (though I had been gone 45 mins and remained in the same building) reminded me that I AM DOING ENOUGH… What’s something you can do to remind yourself of all the “good” you bring to the world? . . . . . . . #Texasteacher #teachersoftexas #iteachtoo #speducator #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #teacherssupportteachers #tiredteacher #austin #iteachk #iteachfirst #iteach2nd #targetteachers #elarroyosign #elarroyoatx #youareenough
