Ramona Meharg – Special Ed is Never An Excuse

Hello, and welcome to Episode 65 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Ramona Meharg, an ESE teacher out of Ontario, Canada. She is also a podcaster and member of the VoicEd Radio family, so I was excited to have her on the show.

Ramona and I talk about the power of podcasting and the VoicEd Radio network, how political education has become, the changes in sex-ed curriculum in Canada, the effect of technology in the ESE classroom, taking risks and modeling growth mindset, and how important it is to never let your population be an excuse to not do something.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 65 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Ramona Meharg.
