As an educational consultant, I commit to working with individual schools and programs as they embark on their journey towards greater inclusion. We will work collaboratively to a clear plan with targeted outcomes so that all stakeholders are working in partnership towards the same goal on their pathway to success.
Kristel Solomon is International Educational Consultant and former Director of Learner Support at an international school in Hong Kong. Her dedication and passion in the field of education has led her to work with a wide range of schools and organizations that ensure children have access to a high quality education so that they may find their individual pathways to excellence. Prior to working with international schools, she taught and mentored students within the high incidence, and “at risk” population in, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland.
Kristel is a graduate of Temple University with degrees in Elementary and Special Education and a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology. She also holds a graduate certificate in Mind, Brain and Teaching from Johns Hopkins University.
Her personal commitment to leading has allowed her to work closely with the Next Frontier Inclusion (NFI) as their Asia-Pacific Regional Coordinator, The Special Education and Inclusion Association (SENIA) and contribute to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Guidelines for Inclusive Education. As a workshop leader and student support services reviewer,
This workshop will explore the complex and rewarding work of growing a culture of inclusion within an international school context. Participants will explore how identity and values drive our collaboration, and how effective collaboration supports equitable outcomes for all learners. By drawing on a data informed decision making process, we will unpack practical approaches to inspiring and influencing change within school culture, practice and the wider community.
1.In a word, or a brief phrase, to finish this statement…. Inclusion is…… Inclusion is not…..
2.What images, assumptions and fears exist within our learning communities?
3.How might you support your school through their journey towards greater inclusion?
Today on the podcast, I had the great opportunity to speak with Kristel Solomon Saleem who is a passionate inclusion leader and will be one of our presenters at the upcoming SENIA virtual conference.
I offer a complimentary one-hour service to go over the school/program support process. After this initial consultation, I follow up with the school/program to recommend an appropriate service for their needs.
I am available on an hourly basis to give schools/programs advice about how they might further develop their program of inclusion.
I offer a complete service that includes evaluating current Learner Support or Special Education programs, establishing reachable goals, advising opportunities for supporting students and teachers in an online learning format. Additionally, I am able to meet with Parents, Students and/or Community Members to develop and aligned approach to supporting all learners.
