I received an email from Cecilia Nieto, Community Liaison Specialist, Division of Early Childhood Education, Special Education and Tittle I Programs for FDLRS- South Associate Center. Ms. Nieto helps serve students in Miami Dade and Monroe Counties. After reviewing my information and watching my Easter Seals Indianapolis video, she offered to share my teaching strategies with her colleagues. Due to time and distance, I really appreciate her help!

I want to thank Summer McGrady, Vice President of Community Engagement at at Easter Seals Washington, for posting my Easter Seals Indianapolis video and other information on Facebook and Twitter. Her time and effort will hopefully help many children that they serve in Washington.

I would like to thank Wade Wingler and Justin Amber at Easter Seals Indianapolis for the opportunity to do a demonstration and help making a demonstration video. Hopefully, I can return to Indianapolis in the near future!

I really appreciate the opportunities to demonstration my teaching strategies at the South River Assistive Technology Center in Gonzales, LA and at St. Tammany Parish Schools in Covington, LA on December 11th. I was able to meet several AT and VI specialists in SE Louisiana with the intention of helping the students that they serve with their math standards.

After my math demonstration at St. Tammany Parish Schools, I was invited by Michael Norman, Coordinator of the Louisiana Deafblind Project for Children and Youth, to do a session at his upcoming conference this spring. Please follow my “Latest News” for the date of the conference and time of my session.

My manipulatives are available for check out at 6/7 of the Louisiana Assistive Technology Initiative Centers. Please contact the LATI regional facilitators to check out my manipulatives or if you need feedback from educators about my teaching strategies.
