Hey all you Itinerant Teachers-
What is YOUR favorite tip or trick?
I'll start this off with something I'm doing right now: Meeting with as many teachers as possible that the students will have for the Fall. When I started doing this years ago- I was amazed at how much calmer and smoother the beginning of the school year went! Post your ideas, tips and tricks!!

Hi, I'm a new to teaching children with hearing loss and need some tips!
I am looking for tips and advice on in-servicing a kindergarten class about cochlear implants, as one of the students has one in the class. How would some of you go about this? It's a short but I'd like it to be effective! Also, I saw a book online called Abby Gets a Cochlear Implant. Is that available in Canada and is that a good read aloud choice or are there good read alouds out there? Thanks!!
Do you find this valuable?
