It is my priviledge to teach individuals with disabilites in the Woodcreek High School community. I teach Functional Academics with an emphasis on Language Arts and Independent Living Skills.
“Inclusive education is about embracing all, making a commitment to do whatever it takes to provide each student in the community—and each citizen in a democracy—an inalienable right to belong, not to be excluded. Inclusion assumes that living and learning together is a better way that benefits everyone, not just children who are labeled as having a difference (Falvey, Givner & Kimm, 1995, p.8).”
