JIT Goes To Prom

Category : News

Marshall was ecstatic to go to Sherwood High School’s Prom. He engaged in posing for pictures with everyone – while smiling non stop. At the prom, Marshall enjoyed sitting with a group of friends and being included in discussion and laughter during dinner. While Marshall enjoyed every bite of dinner, he was even more excited to get on the dance floor. Marshall danced with all of his friends the whole night, and was so reluctant to leave! It was a great evening with smiles, laughter, and memories that will last a lifetime!

Here are some of your awesome employees making sure Marshall had a great time at Prom!! They’re the best!

A Graduation Party Blog

Category : News

6-6-15

Yesterday, on June 5, 2015, Marshall and I celebrated our graduation with a pizza party. All our friends came to show us love and support as we move on to the next chapter of our lives. The party was amazing! We were given certificates for all our hard work and effort at JIT. Being here at JIT has been a humbling experience. I’ll remember all the moments I had here and keep all of you in my heart as I continue my journey.

Thank you,
Samuel Ji-hu Liang

Fair Day With AAMC

Category : News

We had so much fun at the fair in Mt. Airy! We played games, earned prizes, and jumped around in a bounce house. We were even lucky enough to see and pet goats, ducks, rabbits, and more. We finished off the eventful day with pizza and ice cream! Yum!

A Win For All ! Guernsey Team + AAMC Team

Category : News

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to say a special thank you to everyone on the team for all the help over the past few weeks working with Ryan and Lauren on creating and practicing their speeches for the 4-H Public Speaking Contest. Special thanks to Annie, Edris, Maira, Jake and Amie for all those trips to the library – the revising, editing and practicing the speeches gave them a lesson in persistence that really paid off!

We just got back from the 4-H Communications Contest and everyone came away with a special award! It was a tough competition this year since Heather, Ryan and Lauren are all intermediates and Eric is a Junior. They all entered in 3 categories (prepared speech, radio spot and extemporaneous) except for Eric who decided to withdraw from Extemp today, so he entered in prepared speech and radio spot. I want to say also, that it would not have been possible for me to help Eric and Heather as much if it hadn’t been for the help of all the techs so we could divide and conquer the work. The twins’ time at JIT with Maria and Pratik helped me to focus on Eric and Heather. Special thanks to Edris and Annie for the early morning help at the contest all the way through the award ceremony. Here are the stats:

Heather: Intermediate Champion in Radio Spot
Lauren: Intermediate Reserve Champion in Radio Spot
Ryan: Intermediate Reserve Champion in Prepared Speech
Eric: Junior Champion in Radio Spot and Reserve Champion in Prepared Speech

They really made us proud and their 4-H club proud too! I have to say also, that Ryan had the judges laughing up a storm with his incredible delivery on “Should Schools give Homework.” I know that each and every tech can appreciate Ryan’s passion for his opinion on the matter! The animated way that he delivered his speech with inflection, gestures and comedic relief really drove his point home! It was a personal best for him! We are proud of all of them – they all practiced hard and came across with confidence and pizzazz!

Thank you again for all your help,
Lynda

AAMC’s Annual Holiday Party 2015

Category : News

New Years is not only a time for new beginnings but also overviewing the past year. This last year, AAMC’s technicians and students grew and learned immensely. Every day we learn something new, such as what works best with students and how to develop trusting relationships with them. It is truly amazing to see our students grow over time.

       At this year’s holiday party at the clubhouse in Rockville, we celebrated everything we’ve accomplished as a team and celebrated what is to come at AAMC. We had a wonderful lunch and sat around tables as the family that we are. Of course we had tasty desserts the kids loved as well. There was also a movie theater and a pool table. A wonderful slideshow of pictures from the past years was on display for all to enjoy. Also, we had Andres, our DJ, who really got the party going with fun music. The students, technicians, and family members all danced together. Everyone was smiling and full of joy. It was beautiful to see our students dancing and letting go.

       Kat, one of our student’s older sister, gave a touching speech about what it’s like to be a sibling to an individual with autism. She moved all of us and articulated what we all felt – our love for our friends with special needs and our commitment to walk beside them through thick and thin. It was a great reminder to us of how important our job at AAMC truly is.
