If you were a dean of special education in charge of leading a PD what would you choose as your topic and why? I will present a model PD for a panel interview and am interested in the perspective of other stakeholders.

Tips for getting parents to work with you and how to deal with tough parents.


Did you inquire about what might be helpful or beneficial? Maybe what ppl are struggling with most? You can then take a deeper dive into something that they can take w them and use right away. They’ll be more invested bc they are part of the process.


Co-teaching models.


How can we optimize our dwindling resources? Scheduling ideas
Intervention time
Writing goals and IEPs
Changes in laws that affect SpEd

I would love a PD filled with “hacks”, just quick things that make our lives easier!


too many typos to care lol


Do a survey and see what the teachers want. That will make PD much better.


Inclusion model
New teacher integration
Classroom management
Classroom setup
Time management: instruction|paperwork
Work life balance
Teacher mentorship
Parent communication


Love those “hacks”. In swk we have to have 45 ceu every 3 yrs. PD days do not count. Last year we were given permission to get our ceus done during work time, if allotted. Wow! What a great morale booster for our dept. Trying to find reasonably priced workshops/seminars is not easy. Often the certain places offer free or super low cost ceu but they’re held during the day. Some are only 2 hrs. I’m not sure how many of us actually had time to do this (last yr) but just the permission to do so is golden.


Early reading interventions. So much of a child’s educational future relies on literacy skills.


I would address school law review or ask things autistic. Not all classrooms even regular Ed are helping students with autism. Even the layout of the tomb and the schedule can effect children.

Ways classroom teachers can document and prove following IEP
Best practices to make sure sped students are getting the most out inclusion classes
How to fill out sped paperwork for ards

FERPA rules and how to protect yourself - i.e. using initials in an email does not protect you. That info is still FERPAable. Do you know how many C.J. ‘s I have?! Using initials only creates confusion, and does noting to protect you from lawsuits.

I am a newly promoted supervisor who has been with my company for 3 years. The promotion came with a salary increase & I was happy about that.

However, since in my new role I have come to discover that people I am now overseeing have a higher pay rate than I do. Some have been with the company longer than I have, some have not.

Maybe it was my bad for not asking for not negotiating my pay raise, but I am wondering what you would do in this situation?

Anyone have advice for advancing in your current role? My co-worker was hired in at manager level but somehow “proved” he was actually doing director level work and got a title promotion and salary increase in less than a year. I also went above and beyond my job as well (covering for him for a month while he was away on paternity leave) while taking on other projects outside of my job title and got zip—no raise or recognition. Any advice would be appreciated!
