Community Education Coordinator (CEC)
The CEC will was recently hired to help VDA Inc. reach its goal of serving the “Whole Child.” She serves two main roles: 1) Equip teachers with the tools and information they need to establish an inclusive environment and 2) act as a liaison between our families and VDA Inc. The first role requires that our CEC observe classrooms, give feedback to teachers, write individualized plans, model best teaching practices, and use her special education background to maintain a long term coaching relationship with site supervisors and teachers. The second role includes building strong relationships with families, introducing families to a range of resources in their areas, and checking in on progress.
