“I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.”
-Tupac Amaru Shakur
What does your average day look like?
Right now as an AIS at ARISE High School I push into classes to provide support to students with IEPs in the general education setting. This is the first time I have my own office hours, so I am also able to help students on specific skills related to their IEP goals and with whatever subjects they need additional support in.
Why do you do this work?
I believe that as Nelson Mandela said “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” As an educator it is my job to equip students with the skills and knowledge to thrive in a challenging world.
What hope do you have for the future of All-In?
I hope that the All-In Unconditional Education model continues to be implemented in more schools throughout the nation! As an inclusion minded educator, my ultimate dream is for Seneca Family of Agencies to open its own network of schools in which we would serve all students in a community regardless of ability or diagnosis. Schools that provide the traditional functions as well as implementation of the Unconditional Education RTI model!!!
