AMAZING ! ! ! !
I am school-based therapist who in interviewing next week for a position in special education. My background has been solely in the non-profit sector and would like to transition to the educational setting. This podcast is short, concise, and most importantly isn't boring. Mr. Durham does an excellent job at explaining the setting and outright tells you what you expect to learn by the time the epiosde is over. The few podcasts that are available have helped me conceptualize the position I am interviewing for and have been extremely educational. Thank you, Mr. Durham. If I am offered the position, you played a large role in my deeper understanding of special education and the parameters that I will work in. Blessings.
I listened to all of these in two sittings. This is impressive because I’m a special education teacher who is very busy! I LOVED LISTENING. I wanted more after each listen and I even went back and listened to one twice. These are very educational, informative, and just great to listen to. I hope to hear more soon!
As a new special education teacher, I really appreciate this podcast. Well done!
