I am an elementary school special education teacher. I teach 100% of the time in an inclusion setting. I LOVE the co-teaching model and believe with all my heart that all children can learn from each other’s strengths.
This year I have made a commitment to myself to try new practices that encourage creativity and integrate technology in an authentic way with my students. I know the journey will be slow and laborious. It will have bumps in the road and require me to take extra time to become familiar with new tools.
I will not worry about how fast I am moving forward. I will only focus on moving forward and learning from my mistakes. This is what I preach to my students, so it is time for me to practice what I preach.
