I am sure that you wonder about the educational landscape today. I do. As a teacher, I am interested in sharing thoughts and ideas related to the education of children, particularly those with special needs. Whether it is sharing lesson ideas, adventures in differentiation, instructional resources, educational law, meaningful anecdotes, or the general state of being of our educational system, let’s talk. Join me in The Nuts and Bolts of Special Education.
