SPE Leadership


EDUC 523 Managing the P-12 Exceptional Education Program


I have been a special educator for over 40 years and have directed three programs for children with disabilities...most recently an on-campus, fully inclusive, child development center.

As times and needs have changed, so have I. My current research interests include Autism Spectrum Disorders, Educational Neuroscience, supports for special education teachers and the implementation of special education programs in the Middle East (Lebanon).

Where & when?

This is a hybrid class. We will have only a few meetings here on the Samford campus in the School of Education, with the remaining class time in your cozy abode online!. During our first class meeting we will determine the best times to meet. How's that for service?
