As much as we can try to predict barriers in our own lives and in our teaching, there is always something new that could present itself. In this inspiring Fireside Chat, we'll talk with Kristin Fox, who Katie lovingly refers to as "Foxy," a school administrator who was put in a medically induced coma in March 2020 as a result of Influenza A and bacterial pneumonia and woke up as a quadriplegic. Come and learn more about the power of UDL, flexibility, and expert learning as Foxy weaves in wit, pedagogy, life lessons, and what all of us should be doing in our learning environments so all students, of all abilities and identities, will be successful.
