Teaching an Inclusive Class

**Class timings are Sundays from 9:30 AM to 3 PM**

“Teaching an Inclusive Class” is a 6 month weekend certified course for in-service teachers teaching all grades, candidates currently enrolled in teacher training programs, and passionate new graduates who are considering teaching as a career option. The course will empower teachers to teach struggling students more effectively. Since all classes have struggling students, this course will be invaluable to teachers who wish to reach every student in their classes. When the teacher is able to make learning accessible to every student, it makes the class more inclusive because every student feels comfortable to learn.

This course will be presented by Padma Shastry of Samam Vidya, Koramangala, Bangalore. Padma got her Master’s in Special Education from Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, California. She worked in inclusive education her entire career. She was the Head of the Special Education Department at Buchser Middle School, Santa Clara, before returning to India to start Samam Vidya as a resource for teachers to facilitate inclusive education. In this course, she will be sharing the instructional materials and strategies gleaned from her university professors, and over the course of her career .
