As educators, our passion drives us to insure students despite exceptionality or cognitive ability can find success while accessing grade level material. In child rearing you regularly hear, “it takes a village to raise a child”, but what about the ability to teach them barrier breaking skills? Who teaches them these invaluable lessons? Honestly, this can be an overwhelming challenge for special education teachers given the current demands in education. With the TMS, we can work together through the collaborative practice of “sharing the load”. We consist of educators that share a passion and commitment to student learning. Although challenging, we create magic by focusing on the needs of the students we are called to serve. Embracing the concepts of differentiation, individualized learning or being proactive in your efforts to provide additional learning avenues for each student;makes you a perfect fit for the “Mod Squad”.
