I am here as an educator in the K-12 public school system in the United States. I am a Director of Special Education and also a State-Wide Trainer for Meeting Mechanics. My goal is to continue to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaming amongst educators as we make critical decisions for students. I am looking for research and media clips that support structured agendas, team approach and process, rotating facilitator roles and utilizing a team evaluation process. I am looking forward to learning and contributing to this community.
