Brad, With the changes in demographics occurring rapidly throughout the United States, I feel that the transition nights you discuss are an excellent option for more than just students with disabilities. We should consider this for all ELL students also. I love the emphasis you place on face time, discussion, and availability of resources. I enjoyed the post and plan to bring the ideas to our system. I hope that the transition nights have continued to work well for you!
Lisa, I think this was an exceptional post about an often overlooked situation. As Special Educators, we often receive files with past behavior reports and much more. We should not allow these reports to negatively impact our opinion on a student. Furthermore, we should start with a new slate as you suggest. I feel that the example you used is an excellent example of how hard work and motivation is the key to success. Better yet, you may even be responsible for motivating this student and finding the great student inside of her. Best of luck with your career and thanks for the read!
