Class Experience

Students will walk away from this class with a basic understanding of how to communicate their IEP needs with their teachers. They will learn about self awareness and self advocacy.
     I had an IEP from grades 1-12. I watched my mother clearly and assertively advocate my needs all through school. By time I went to to college, I was more self aware. I understood my strengths and weaknesses. I knew how to calmly and assertively advocate to get my needs met. I remember how empowered I felt when I solved a problem with one of my college classes. My mother was frustrated. I told my her "It is okay. I'll handle this. I know what to say." Together with the college administration's help I expressed a solution to the problem and what would be helpful for me to excel. I realized with the proper assistance, I could accomplish anything, and I refused to let barriers stop me from accomplishing my goals. By continuing to use these skills, I graduated college with a Master's degree. 
     I have a Master's of Social Work degree with a concentration in Community Organizing. I have a Bachelors of Science degree with a major in Human Development and Family Studies. I hold certificates in child youth and family services, diversity, leadership, and conflict resolution. I have over 5 years paid experience working with children online and in person.
No home work is required for this class. Home work is optional. I ask students to think about their strengths before they come to class. I will also post additional notes with links to helpful websites after class. I do encourage students to practice and apply what they learned in class. 
no supplies are necessary. I do ask learners to think about their strengths and share their needs with the class in order for everyone to learn and grow. I will post addition resources after class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment in this class. I do encourage students to participate and role play to make sure they understand how to apply the knowledge learned.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is a class about advocating the student's IEP needs. Students are encouraged to participate by sharing their challenges while thinking of ways to meet to their needs.
I will post notes with links of helpful websites after class. Some helpful websites I used consist of,, and
