I am excited to announce that I am now booking my presentations for the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 school year!
Everyone in our inclusive community has to have background knowledge, acquire new vocabulary, and reflect on their current practices and space. We pre-teach for students, so why wouldn't we do that for ourselves?! It supports us in digging deeper.
When we strategically train in all 9 essential elements of an inclusive community, it works! From scheduling to assistive technology to adapting instruction and creating inclusive spaces... let's have all the pieces to set up for success!
The best professional development has follow-up that makes sense and is relevant to your school community. Remember when you reflected on current practice and spaces? We might need to revisit that or create some unique supports. Makes sense, right?!
We are most successful when our students grow. All of them. Every child needs to be included in learning to grow, feel confident and empowered as little humans. They grow up to be big humans and an integral part of the communities in which we live.
