Sometimes PROGRESS requires doing whatever is necessary. This video highlights Gladys Short, a veteran special educator, and Jonathan, one of her students, from a tribal charter school in North Carolina. This story explains how they helped each other to see progress during the uncertainty of COVID-19. In the video, they share how Jonathan was able to provide technical support to Gladys to support virtual instruction, how Gladys incorporated social-emotional support and strategies virtually and during the return to in-person instruction to help Jonathan stay on track with his academic goals, and how Gladys adapted their curriculum related to their small business café for virtual delivery so that they were ready to launch again once they were back in the classroom.
