“Texas A&M University is opening the door to higher education for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities — making history as the first program of its kind in the state.
The school has vowed to help students with disabilities realize their dreams of becoming Aggies with a four-year post-secondary education program specifically designed to support them, the public university announced in a statement. The Aggie ACHIEVE program will begin this fall , with four students taking courses focused on independent living, career development and field specialization.”
“Sadly, many students with intellectual and developmental disabilities are never given the opportunity to fulfill their dream of going to college. But thanks to a groundbreaking new program, Texas A&M is finally making that dream a reality.
This fall , Texas A&M is launching Aggie ACHIEVE (Academic Courses in Higher Inclusive Education and Vocational Experiences), Texas’ first inclusive, four-year postsecondary education program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to ‘expand their interests and prepare them for employment.’”
“Truly great teachers are remembered by their students long after graduation, so Kristi Plummer may be in her students’ thoughts for many years to come. A 2007 Texas A&M University education graduate and math specialist at Passmore Elementary School in Alvin, Texas, Plummer won the prestigious Milken Educator Award in 2012. She was one of only 40 teachers in the nation to receive the annual award, considered the ‘Oscar’ of teaching.
As a math specialist for grades 3-5, Plummer instructs students who need help with their math fundamentals. ‘I think there’s a mathematician hidden inside every child,’ she says.”
“Imagine for a moment what it would be like to have a relaxing morning the day of your wedding! Where instead of running around feeling stressed, you could take that time to sit back and relax with a sassy boudoir shoot to surprise your soon-to-be husband with?
A morning-of boudoir shoot will allow you to feel beautiful and empowered on your wedding day, and Writ Studio beautifully captured this idea styled by All Things Planned at the lovely Olde Dobbin Station.”
