    General Ed and Special Ed Collaboration Tips with SLP, Amanda Newsome

    I'm so excited to bring on a guest who is also one of my best friends. Her name is Amanda Newsome and she is a wife, mom, and speech-language pathologist. She has been in an elementary setting for ten years. She also runs her business, A Perfect Blend, where she creates beautiful fonts as well as other digital and printable resources.
     
    Amanda and I are diving into the disconnect that sometimes happens between GenEd and SPED. Amanda has lots of great tips on how to build the relationship between the two teachers in order to best serve our students. We believe that the greatest growth comes when both worlds come together and collaborate throughout the entire school year.
     
    In this episode we discuss:
    How SLP's can support GenEd teachers and vice versa The importance of keeping communication open between teachers all year long in regards to student goals and progress Understanding that your special education students are the responsibility of both the GenEd and SPED teacher Simple ways that teachers can work collaborate virtually Creative ideas for giving students real-world experiences on your school's campus

    3 Ways to Engage Students for Better Classroom Management

    If you know me, you know I LOVE talking about classroom management, so that's what we are diving into today! Classroom management is something that's constantly evolving for all of us. You've probably found that what works for your class one year doesn't work the next year. You may even have to switch up your management tools throughout the year, and that's okay!
     
    Each part of the year brings new challenges. The time of year between winter break and spring break is a great time to try out new systems in your classroom to encourage students to stay engaged, feel successful, and make positive choices. Having effective and fun classroom management routines will make every day so much smoother for you and your students.
