Christopher John Flor is a district-level Exceptional Education Coach for Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. He began his career supporting students with disabilities as an Academic Program Lead at Citizen Schools New Jersey back in 2010 where he worked at a cluster school for children with IEPs in Newark. He also was a member of the Citizen Schools National Curriculum Task Force. After moving to Nashville in 2012, he became the Special Education Department Head and Response to Intervention Coordinator at a local middle school where he served for five years. As an exceptional education coach, he supports schools from elementary to high school and sees strategies for co-teaching as a common deficit. He provides professional development on the topic at the school and district level.
I am a big fan of cooperative and peer based learning strategies that utilize concepts of universal design for learning and differentiation. Developing myself and training others as a co-teacher has been central to my growth as an educator.
