Did you ever wonder if teachers feel compelled to advocate for their students?  Ever wonder what kind of advocacy and teamwork they desire from and with parents?  In today’s episode I talk with Ms. Lucy from @thealternativewaytoprek about how she runs her self-contained preschool classroom, advocacy, how she uses AAC in her classroom, and so much more!  Lucy and I could go on and on about advocating for children on IEPs… oh wait, we did!  Join me for this entertaining, spirited, informative conversation!  You may want another cup of coffee first… Lucy and I are both pretty high energy!  😊 


Get to know my guest: Hello! My name is Lucy and I am a preschool self-contained teacher! I have my Bachelors and Masters degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education.  I am originally from Buffalo, NY (GO BILLS!) but relocated to South Carolina in 2014 to persue my teaching career.  I have been teaching in SC  for seven years.  I serve students with a wide range of abilities ages 3-4 all of who have an IEP. I implement a variety of strategies and methodologies to address each student's specific needs. I am very passionate about advocating for my students, inclusion, and AAC (augmentative and alternative communication).
