axis3-A new way to Support Special Educators

axis3 was created specifically to address the workload that special education teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators face each day–as well as the support they need to handle new challenges.

I think this training should be taught to all Teachers and Educational Assistants in order to better serve our students and to enable the Teacher and EA to be 'on the same page.'

Creatively Focused has been hands down the best experience I've ever had working with a partner. All of the PD gets planned, scheduled, communicated, and completed without me needing to do anything.
