Hi CEC Student Members! I am Jess

     Hi fellow CEC Student members! I am Tracy Sinclair, second year doctoral student at the University of Oklahoma, concentrating on Applied Behavior Analysis and Transition. This is my first year as the Student Representative to the Representative Committee. I look forward to serving you in this role, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with suggestions or questions or comments regarding student membership in CEC.

We are your elected Student Representatives to CEC’s Representative Assembly (RA), which serves as the membership advisory body to the Board of Directors. Representatives will engage in a discussion about effective practices for early career special educator retention during the RA Assembly at the CEC 2018 Convention & Expo.

Feedback Questions:

  • What are the needs regarding early career special education and early intervention teacher retention?
  • What is your unit/division already doing about the retention of early career special education and early intervention teachers and which of those have you identified as being effective?
  • What should CEC be doing at the international level (i.e., applicable beyond the U.S.) regarding the retention of early career special education and early intervention teachers?

Please take time to provide us with your input. The deadline to provide your input is 3:00 p.m. EDT, Jan. 31, 2018.

Your input is critical. The outcomes of this discussion will help inform the future direction of CEC policies, programs, products and services and may impact the chance of you being successful in your first job as a special educator.

Thank you in advance for your input and for helping CEC—your professional home—ensure that special educators are effectively prepared for 21st century classrooms.
