• TEACHER CONSULTANT for Students with Disabilities

    Hello Everyone! 

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I know many of you are feeling overwhelmed thinking about the virtual learning process, but please know that we are here to help! :-) 

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    As the Teacher Consultant for students with disabilities, I spend much of my day setting up IEP meetings, collecting data, and generating paperwork. I can certainly help consult on issues going on in the classroom and brainstorm ideas with families/teachers/students, so that each and every student is getting their needs met. For parents of students with disabilities, below is brief information regarding IEP meetings this year:

    • IEP Meetings:
      • IEP Invites will be sent to your home address via mail. If you need to reschedule the IEP meeting, please contact me. My contact information is below.
      • IEP meetings will be held virtually through zoom on Tuesday's or Thursday's. Teachers will join through zoom and students/guardians will join through conference call. We will all be able to hear each other, but not necessarily see each other.
      • I will have about 45 minutes set up for each IEP meeting. If you need longer, that is no problem on our end. 
    • IEP Team - All members of the IEP team will be invited to our virtual IEP meetings this year.
    • New IEP information - please plan on sharing how your son/daughter is doing in the virtual learning process. What is going well? What can we further help with?
    • Reminder - We are a TEAM! We have your child's best interest in mind. Let's work together!
    • IEP related concerns - if you are having any concerns regarding your child's IEP, please reach out to their case manager to see if they can help assist you. :-) 

    A Person Who Feels Appreciated Will Always Do More Than What Is Expected
