The PROGRESS Center’s Educators in Residence comprise a diverse group of dynamic educators who work alongside Center staff to ensure local perspectives are represented in Center activities. Additionally, these educators help us better understand the current and ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on the demands of local educators and leaders with regard to developing and implementing high-quality educational programs for students with disabilities. Each project year (November-October), we recruit new educators to serve as a Center Educator in Residence. All educators receive compensation for their time as a resident. The Educators in Residence also develop a community—collectively they tackle tough questions facing the field today and are valued by Center staff for their unique perspectives. They are our partners, our thought leaders and our “eyes and ears” to the field. We will be adding bios for additional 2022-2023 Educators in Residence, so check back to see if there is someone from your state or in a similar role!
