About Staar-alt Helper
I am Cindy Lovelace. I have worked with special education students for a long time. I started working as an aide in group homes and workshops then, went to college at age 38. Then, I worked 5 years as a Case Management Supervisor for children and adults with Intellectual Disabilities (formerly Mental Retardation) or Autism. Then, in 1998, I became a Life Skills teacher for grades 4-6th in Ennis, Texas.
Let’s Face It!
Teaching students with Id or Autism is difficult. Understanding how to teach grade level TEKS is confusing. TEA tries to help with Staar Alternate 2 resources but those can be hard to understand. Besides who has time to figure it out and teach students?
I created Staar-alt Helper for myself when we had tasks to do. Then, I shared it with my district. For 3 years, I sold them to districts in Texas. Last year, TEA changed the test.
Now, I have created Staar Alternate 2 Helpers to help you teach smarter – not harder.
