At this session, you will create a connection to the importance of inclusion by hearing a general education teachers vulnerable story of the metamorphosis of her teaching practice and philosophy of inclusion after giving birth to a child with Down syndrome and hearing loss. The presenters will bring their experiences of creating student-centered classrooms and embedding differentiation into existing curriculum in order to create an environment of inclusion. You will walk away with the tools to  modify your existing daily classroom instruction, increasing the level of equity and respect for all students, and the level of students learning as well.
