Kristi Gaddis, executive director of Student Services and Exceptional Children for Yadkin County Schools, along with Le’Don Bedsaul, exceptional children’s instructional coach for Yadkin County Schools, have been chosen to co-present at the state conference in November following a competitive application process.
Gaddis’ and Bedsaul’s presentation is one that was presented to 52 Yadkin County teachers last school year. Because of an overwhelming response to it, and requests to present it again, the decision was made to apply to present it to exceptional children’s educators statewide.
This is the first time that Yadkin County Schools has been chosen to present at the EC State Conference held at the Koury Convention Center/Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel in Greensboro. The two-day event will be held Nov. 9 and 10.
Active Student Response and Class Engagement will be the main focus of the presentation. The presentation will prepare participants to lead the strengthening of Tier I and 2 CORE instruction at the school level. The instructional methods covered are versatile and can be used in a variety of classroom settings.
