Who am I?
I am a certified special education teacher and have been a special educator for over 25 years. I am also a trained Master IEP Coach. I've worked in the United States and England. During that time I've met many parents and caregivers who were overwhelmed by the IEP process, document, and meetings. These parents have shared with me their feelings of confusion, frustration, and loneliness throughout the IEP process. I've also worked with teachers and administrators who felt lost, overwhelmed, and confused by all that special education involves.
My mission is to partner with parents, caregivers, and school districts in understanding Special Education, the IEP document and process, and to find common ground to enhance the education of children with special needs.
The ultimate goal is for you to feel comfortable in decision making and confident that the IEP is providing a Free Appropriate Public Education by preparing the child for further education, employment, and independent living based upon their unique needs.
