Beth & Oliva- Co-Teaching Team at Alvin Dunn I.B. World School! (SMUSD)

Beth and Olivia Co-teach together for part of the morning in a 3rd grade classroom.   Beth has been teaching for 2 years and is currently in pursuit of a Master's Degree in Bilingual Education.  She has a Bilingual CLAD Authorization in Spanish and is also an authorized International Baccalaureate Teacher.  Oliva is an Education Specialist for students in grades 2-3.  She has a Masters Degree in Special Education and has a Education Specialist Instruction credential and a multiple Subject Teaching Credential.

They were both a part of the UDL cadre in San Marcos.  There are 7 students in the classroom with IEPs. They started the year with maximum support of paraeducators in the classroom most of the day.  Over time, they were able to reduce the amount of adult support as they realized the students were doing well with natural supports and Universal Design for Learning.

As a 1:1 iPad classroom, they incorporate technology into their daily lessons.
