Have you ever wanted to get the view from a general education teacher on how SLPs and other special service providers in the school can support them? Me too. It’s always a good idea to bring the two groups together so you can work as a team.
In this episode, we are lucky enough to get a fresh perspective from my first guest that is NOT an SLP or special educator, Gretchen Bridgers from Always a Lesson.
Gretchen is a general education teacher of 8 years and was a Teacher of the Year runner-up two years in a row. With years of mentoring new teachers, providing professional development to school building staff, and speaking nationally at conferences and in-services, Gretchen has now invested her time solely to consulting individual teachers and school staff.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:
- The best way to tailor your lesson plans to each child
- How to track learning trends with your students
- Questions to ask to help identify a struggling student
- How to give kids prompts to help them identify their own struggles
- Resources that support providers can give to teachers
I hope you are excited about this opportunity to hear from a teacher’s perspective. I know I am! It’s a great reminder to chat with the general education teachers you work with more often to find out how you can best support each other.
