Thank you for visiting! I taught Special Education (inclusion) in an urban elementary school. My teaching day included providing whole group support in the 1st grade classrooms, parallel-teaching with general educators, teaching small-group reading interventions, and more...every hour of my teaching day looked different and I LOVED it! Most recently, I have been working as an instructional coach, a position that has helped me learn and grow as an educator and mentor. Please visit my blog for more information: https://positivelylearningblog.com Hopefully you will be able to find something just right for your students! I always appreciate comments and suggestions. Thanks again! Jen
I truly believe ALL children can learn. My approach is simple...I will do whatever it takes for my students to succeed in the least restrictive environment. What does this look like? Incorporating multiple intelligences, hands-on learning, positive reinforcement of skills...whatever my students need. This seems to change from year to year which keeps me on my toes! As a special educator, I am also always using data to inform my instruction. My products are organized for the most simple data-taking possible so I can stay focused on what's important - my students!
