Environmental Structure in the classroom: Setting Up for Success
Kaitlin Erdman, B.S, M.S., Special Education Teacher, Warren County Public Schools
In this presentation, I will be discussing what I have found to be the most effective ways to structure your classroom so that your students, your instructional staff, and you as the teacher can be successful.
My name is Kaitlin Erdman. This is my 8th year teaching special education students K-5 with significant cognitive needs, for Warren County Public Schools in Virginia. I graduated from Shenandoah University with my Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Masters of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis. I attended UVA Wise where I completed their teaching licensure program to become a licensed Special Education Teacher. I realized very quickly my passion was for students who are on the Autism Spectrum and I wanted to work with them in a classroom-based setting. I am married to my husband, Dr. Nicholas Erdman, we have a 4-year-old son, Ashton, and a 10-month-old daughter, Charlotte.
