  • After attending this training, I now feel prepared to co-teach. Having  Dianne and Natalie model the ways to co-teach made a tremendous difference in how I look at co-teaching.  A wonderful resource manual and handouts were given, and these will be great tools to use.

  • The Co-Teaching workshop was phenomenal! I learned about the different models of co-teaching and the training helped me to support the co-teaching teams in my school . I received the Co-Teaching Manual during the training and use it as my co-teaching reference book. The book is easy to follow, and I have used the support meeting agendas to meet with my teachers once a month.
