This past week our Year One Professional Staff received professional development in the area of Special Education. Participants spent time learning about the various acronyms and labels utilized in the department and how students are identified for potential services. In addition, the various models of intervention services offered through the MTSS process were introduced. Our presenters also explored a variety of co-teaching models and how they benefit our students. The leadership team from the Special Education Department, Mike Esseily, Courtney Pletzke, Rola Bazzi-Gates, Nicole West and Kim Ray did a wonderful job working with our new professional staff.
The presentation from this session is available on the Dearborn Teacher University tab under “PD Presentations.”
