Things I wish Teachers Knew
Am I Invisible?
Available Online Now!
After I graduated high school in 2017 I wrote a book documenting my journey through school on the autism spectrum called "Am I Invisible-Things I Wish Teachers Knew". I wrote this book for teachers to do better, parents to understand and advocate for their children, and for students who are like me to feel less alone in their journey through school.
I am 23 years old, currently learning to navigate adulthood on the spectrum, and helping others like me feel less alone throughout the process.
Today my biggest hope is that my story has an impact within the education system.
My teacher and mom heart broke as I read this wonderful account of Murphy’s school experiences. She gives good advice and straight up tells teachers what students want and need! We can all vow to do better for all students to make sure all students are visible. Even if you think you do a good job of connecting with kids and building relationships, this book shows that we can do more! I am excited to share this book with some of my students who I know have felt invisible in the past. She also has great advice for them. I loved this book. It is a quick read...I could not put it down. This is a powerful reminder of the importance of having positive adults in ALL students' lives.
