Hi, I'm Michael
I am an inclusive educator. I believe every student can succeed when instruction, assessments & learning environments are designed for their needs, not ours.
My teaching career began in 2011 at a treatment centre for children with a dual-diagnosis. After that, I taught in an Autism program for six years. In that role, I created a vocational training program that fostered inclusion within my school and prepared my students to transition successfully to meaningful employment and college.
Currently, I am head of Special Education at Western Technical Commercial School in Toronto. As a teacher leader I support colleagues to develop effective practices for teaching students with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, and other special needs. Digital technology is a tool I use to engage and empower individuals with special education needs.
After class I coach my school's soccer team. I am also a graduate student.
