Alison Feddes Bozeman k-5 resource teacher My capstone project is connecting our K-5 Special Educuation teachers in our district. We do not current meet as an organized group. During our PIR days, we have to choose a grade and meet with regular education teachers. That does not always meet our training needs. I have surveyed our staff and received feedback from 15/17 in favor of meeting once a month and stanying connected inbetween through an online learning management system. Our job is too hard to do alone. 🙂
