“I carried my notecards with me everywhere! Road trips consisted of me sitting in the third row alone with my notecards! I even had a special bag for the notecards. Sounds super cheesy, but it worked!
“Just remembered this tip! My eyes were feeling very fatigued after two hours so I decided to play around with the different colors on the screen. I settled for the salmon colored screen and it gave my eyes a little rest and I ended up not needing to take another break!

“I currently live in Traverse City, MI, but I was introduced to ABA when I worked in Alaska. I taught there for 7 years in a school for students with severe emotional and behavioral disorders. I am currently teaching in the same kind of program in Michigan. Future plans? Go back to the Last Frontier as soon as I can.”
The Final Frontier, eh?
Cheese, salmon and orange? Now that’s a meal! I really like that Emily ABA-ed herself and manipulated the environment!
Thanks and congrats, Emily!
