speakerWhat People Are Saying

I take lesson planning and teaching very seriously as I strive to deliver my best to each student. I begin lesson planning by studying students’ Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) to identify areas of need, and I build lessons based on this information. I also take into consideration student’s aspirations for the future, and try to construct the lesson around a theme related to something they would like to do. -- Tracy Glass

Tracy is highly organized and methodical in planning her lessons that reflect best practice in her creative use of strategies which are effective for all learners regardless of their backgrounds or needs.
