As an educator, I’m always looking for the best way to meet the needs of my students.  I am especially passionate about meeting the needs of students who have special needs.  Whether, it is a learning disability or something more involved, all students should have their educational needs met in the best setting possible.  With over 20 years of teaching experience, I’ve seen students with a variety of abilities and disabilities.  My course is designed to help all teachers understand the “what, why and how” of an inclusive setting in school.  I love to have discussions with teachers across the country and brainstorm how to meet the educational needs of all students.  I look forward to meeting you online!
