    Creating Change for Kids with Autism

    in Education

    It can often be difficult for kids with autism to function in the classroom. Teachers have so many kids with a variety of needs, so it can be difficult to provide for all student needs. Parents want what’s best for their children and often get frustrated when their child’s needs are not being met. As a teacher how do you meet all the needs of your students? What can parents do to make sure their kids are learning at an appropriate level and getting all the services they require?

    Join the teachers of the Access Possibilities School as they share stories of success with children who have autism. The teachers have a very different point of view about the “disability” of autism. They will show you how looking at autism from a different perspective, along with the use of other simple tools, can create change beyond what you may have thought possible. And, when the kids have success there is a ripple effect for other students, teachers, and parents.

    HIVE - MIND; a memoir ~ organic farming, sustenance and survival.

    in Spirituality

    HIVE - MIND, a memoir by Gabrielle Myers

    Hive-Mind recounts Gabrielle's experiences on a small organic farm in California's Sacramento Valley during the growing season of 2006, as she apprenticed with a female farmer who took her life as the season drew to a close. The memoir begins with Gabrielle's first day on the farm, right after she left her job at an internationally known farm-to-table restaurant, with the intention of taking a long break between cooking full-time and starting graduate school.

    Hive-Mind asks what reasons we give ourselves for our sustenance, while considering how this care of the self and our community can be maintained regardless of life’s challenges and simultaneously compromised through alcohol and drug addiction, romantic loss, and a loved one’s death. Farmer’s decision to take her life after a failed romance runs counter to my embrace of life after a brief affair that didn’t work out as she had hoped. The farm’s acres reflect the divergent answers they each came up with in reply to what they both felt as tragic loss.

    Gabrielle is an Associate Professor of English, writer, and chef living in the Sacramento Valley of California. For over a decade, she worked as a cook and chef for San Francisco Bay area restaurants and catering companies. During the growing season of 2006, she apprenticed under Laura Trent, farmer and owner of Tip Top Produce, an organic farm that specialized in supplying Bay Area farmers’ markets and fine-dining restaurants with heirloom vegetables. Gabrielle, an Associate Professor of English at San Joaquin Delta College, went to graduate school in her early thirties to earn an M.A. in English from the University of California at Davis and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Saint Mary’s College of California.
