“The second edition of The Survival Guide for New Special Education Teachers is a must-have handbook for all new teachers—both those in special education and those teaching in general education inclusive classrooms. The best part is the personal commentary and opportunities for reflection strategically placed throughout the guide. They make you feel like you have a mentor there to help you every step of the way.” —Denise Whitford, Assistant Professor of Special Education, Purdue University College of Education
