Leadership Lessons from a Dancing Guy
I am a teaching and learning Coach in schools, working alongside teachers with students on the autism spectrum. Over the past 30 years we have moved from a system that favoured institutionalising people on the spectrum, to including all people with a disability in mainstream life. I think that is amazing! Not all of the teachers I work with agree with me. My 18 year old son, a veteran of dinner table conversations regarding the frustrations of my day, sent me a link to this fantastic video which made me laugh and motivated me to keep forging ahead. Thanks so much to every first follower in every school I have ever visited.
I am a special education teacher and autism teaching and learning coach, working in mainstream and special education settings in the Hume Region in Victoria Australia.
I am passionate about providing all children with the opportunity to lead enviable lives.
My goal is to share what ever I know about evidence based, best practice strategies and resources that promote positive and inclusive school environments.
