At the beginning of May, schools around the country will celebrate teacher appreciation week. As a former special teacher, I can relate to the dedication and commitment of special educators to help their students succeed. Often, special educators will put in extra hours outside of the classroom, working to find lesson plans that work for their students or finding new ways to teach information that students are not grasping. Our Healthy Relationships Team appreciates all your work and is here to help you every step of the way.
The Healthy Relationships Team realizes that all special educators need a little help sometimes, and that’s why it features ongoing consultations and support. We understand that the best way to appreciate special educators is to partner with them and offer our expertise to the challenges you face. Special educators can always ask us questions about lessons and ways to help their students with various needs learn.
What helps make our Healthy Relationships Curriculum easy to use and reliable is the work of the special educators who helped design it. These special educators have been in your shoes and understand and value the hard work you do every single day. That is why they developed our curriculum with strategies and lessons that work.
Our Healthy Relationships Curriculum also features a variety of ways to make teaching your students fun, including role-playing scenarios and interactive instructions—all designed to build practical social skills and activities for students. Our curriculum features easy ways to connect with parents and encourages caregiver involvement and home reinforcement so that students can practice their skills in real-world settings.
To make it easier and less time-consuming, our Healthy Relationships Curriculum also features digital monitoring tools so you can track students’ progress and find areas where they need support.
I spent more than 20 years as a special education teacher & now a supervisor and have never come across a program that simultaneously supports educators and students. I would encourage you to look at our sample lessons and request a free demonstration of our Healthy Relationships Curriculum! I also encourage you to schedule a meeting with our team and discuss our curriculum. We are always happy to answer your questions!
