When I was in high school, I had a biology teacher who would sit at the front of the room with her text book in front of her. Her lesson basically consisted of sitting at the front of the room, reading through the highlighted words of each section. At the end of each page, she would say, “Questions, any questions? No questions? Good.” The problem was, she never looked up from the book, and we sat in our rows with our hands waving through the air. Clueless.
I am an educator. I have been a teacher in general and special education for many years. I own an educational consulting business, through which I have served as a parent advocate. I also give workshops for parents and teachers ranging from language development to special education laws. I am a resource, and I would much prefer to use this blog as an opportunity to answer your questions…so, feel free to ask.
