    Excellence In Education 2018
    Today’s educators face unique challenges in a world driven by lightning-fast technology, information and misinformation. This panel highlights educators who are working to help students decode the barrage of messages they receive each day. Using innovative critical thinking models, asking kids to “unplug,” showing them how to speak and listen to each other in a respectful manner, and discussing unspeakable atrocities like the Holocaust, are some of the strategies used by these panelists to teach tolerance and learn productive problem-solving techniques. Three of the four panelists are special education teachers. They discuss the increase in the number of classified students, the challenges they face, and the impact of PARC on both students and teachers. Guests Include: Kim Lavin, Special Education Teacher, Valley Middle School Michael T. Skomba, Social Studies Teacher, Somerville High School Jennifer Neu, Special Education Teacher, Tulsa Trail Elementary School Franklin Stebbins, Teacher, Special Education & Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Arthur L. Johnson High School
