Learning + School

As former special education teacher, and as the mom of two fabulous kids (each with unique strengths and needs…), I know how important successful school experiences are. In this section of the site, we’ll talk about learning, strategies for homework and projects, and effective advocacy. Have an idea to share? Please send it along, or leave a comment…I’d love to hear what’s working for you in the classroom!
