Ms. Myrna Wiley, MSED Special Educator
Hello Students and Parents,
My name is Myrna Wiley. I am an ESE Inclusion teacher, also referred to as a Support Facilitator in the general education classroom. This is my sixth year teaching at Marion Oaks Elementary, and over twenty years of teaching and leading in the field of Exceptional Student Education. You may ask, why so many years in this particular field of education? Here is my answer, my dedication lies in the educational advancement of students with special needs.
The numbers of students with disabilities is steadily growing, and while exceptional education in the past typically functioned as a separate system, it is increasingly being integrated into the general education system, thus adding to the diversity in classrooms we call Inclusion. My graduate level courses at Long Island University in New York, were specific towards training ESE teachers to work in inclusive classrooms.
My academic instruction entails working on the same grade-level Standards all students are expected to learn, however I use special strategies and techniques to help my students learn and master new skills. Parents, I welcome you to partner with me!
