I am under the belief that every individual has an innate desire to learn and grow. If we are open to this statement and adapt to change. What an opportunity.....every class offers you the ability to choose being the best student you can be. Whatever that may mean for you. 

As a professor I am here to facilitate that growth, in the end, what you learn is up to you. I have worked in this field for 30 years. I am available to help prepare you for work in the field of helping persons with a variety of disabilities improve their own lives. Please contact me with questions as needed. 

This class requires a minimum of two responses to two different students but also a main post where you respond to the weekly discussion post. In order to gain the most out of this class as possible I would suggest responding to the post as well. Your classmates will be asking you questions and responding with meaningful information...respond to them.
