Team Awesome started in 2015 at Catonsville Middle School.  It was inspired after meeting with several adolescents and adults with social needs.  I spent time at the Hussman Center at Towson University working with adolescents and adults with Autism who were there to make friends, learn life skills or social skills, and to find a place to belong.  One common theme was this: "I wish there was something like this for me when I was younger." Being a teacher, and having access to students who may have a similar need or desire, I wanted to provide that opportunity. 

Team Awesome is a place for respect, understanding, learning, and most importantly: FUN! Last year, we developed a routine that fitted the dynamic of the students.  We made connections. We made friends. We made a place for us.

Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or ideas!
