What is the Special Education ePLC?
Special educators have a challenging job – they serve in multiple roles as teacher, consultant, case manager, and often as supervisor. And frequently, special educators work in settings in which they have few opportunities to think and learn with other special educators.
Research tells us that special educators who receive professional learning specific to their role are more likely to stay in their positions and have higher job satisfaction.
The year-long Special Education ePLC is designed to give special educators a learning community – a space to unpack common challenges, think together, reflect on current practices, and grow as effective educators.
