August 5, 2015
4-5:00 p.m. EDT

Join AMLE (Association of Middle Level Educators), Special Olympics Project UNIFY® and middle level practitioners to learn about social inclusion and its importance for young adolescents. Andrea Cahn, Senior Director of Project UNIFY will share a national perspective and research on the impact of social inclusion on school climate and youth leadership. Bill Schreiber, principal of Granite Falls Middle School, NC, will share how his school has created an inclusive environment where all youth are agents of change. Dr. David Gonzalez, Associate Superintendent, United ISD, Laredo, Texas, will discuss how social inclusion is addressed in his district and the impact it has made in their middle level schools. Sue Gee, Executive Director, Vermont Association for Middle Level Education will discuss the work they are doing to address bullying in Vermont’s middle schools, using social inclusion as the solution.

We are very happy that educators who work with the Special Olympics State Programs in North Carolina, Texas and Vermont will be presenting with Andrea Cahn.
