Kelli Bogner - Class of 2011
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Ashland University in the Dwight Schar College of Education. When I started college in 2008, I was unsure of which major, Intervention Specialist mild-moderate or moderate-intensive would fit me best. My advisor, Dr. Bonnie Adams, suggested completing both licenses in order to become the most educated and well rounded teacher that I could be. This was the best decision that I have made. My classes through the Department of Inclusive Services and Exceptional Learners not only prepared me for the students that I would be working with, but also the latest technology, current curriculum and professional standards. In my mild-moderate courses, I learned how to plan differentiated units, work with many different colleagues and incorporate the latest literacy strategies into my teaching. In the moderate-intensive courses, I was prepared for students that are in need of transition, sensory/motor issues, as well as students that need extra assistance in communicating. Learning not only the mild-moderate coursework, but also the moderate-intensive helped me to become more rounded in my professional teaching career as well as my career as a therapist today. I am proud to say that I am a graduate of the Dwight Schar College of Education and believe that the exceptional teaching and learning that I received is a major part of what I have become today."
