Support teachers in BC fill many roles and carry a variety of titles: LAT, LSS, Support Teacher, Resource teacher... there are more!
Our workshop will discuss the different roles and responsibilities of support teachers based on our work with teachers around the province. We will discuss key components of developing IEPs, school-based teams and team teaching models. Our hope is that this will be a chance to share ideas, questions, and resources with others who are either in this role or who are interested in this role within their school or school district.
