I have taught special education for 4 years at the high school level in a functional academics/life skills classroom. Prior to that, I was involved with the special needs community for 30 years as a mentor, advocate, paraprofessional, community recreational educator.
I believe that all students should have access to core curriculum, including those students with the most significant challenges. Students should also be prepared to work and live in the community as independently as possible and therefore should receive training and exposure to community based activities.
