Inclusiveness in special education

Taylor Flavin shares conversation with a student who caught up with her in the hallway at Wenonah Elementary School on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017.

An inclusive special education teacher at the school, the teacher was on her way to co-teach in a 4th grade classroom where she planned to work with students in reading and word study. 

When asked, most students in the school do not realize she is a special education student which in turn does not signal out any specific student simply because she works with them … as she works with them all.

Photographer’s Note: This photo speaks to me visually on so many levels. Not only is it history, but I love the visual play of the fallen bricks on one side, the graffiti on the other, the mist hovering in the middle, the colors and the passage into the unknown darkness beyond.
