National CEC Award Winner

The Michigan Council for Exceptional Children (MCEC) is pleased to announce that Alexandra Allers has been recognized by CEC and will be awarded the National "Yes I Can!" award in February in Indianapolis, Indiana. Congratulations Alexandra!!! 

Each year, the MCEC honors the outstanding accomplishments of students with exceptionalities who demonstrate their determination and achievements in and outside of the classroom. In March, 2018, Alexandra Allers was presented with the "Yes I Can!" award in the area of technology. Alexandra is a student with a visual impairment that, despite what others may perceive as a barrier or challenge, has excelled in advanced placement classes at school, participated in national braille competitions, and continues to demonstrate her passion to achieving her personal best. She currently is a senior at Port Huron Northern High School in the Port Huron Area School District. After graduation, this impressive young lady would like to pursue a career in law.

MCEC held a special presentation on how to find a way to ensure your perspective is heard by engaging with legislators and policy makers at every level. We encourage you to engage with education policy makers this summer; it it easier than you may think! Take a look at the recorded webinar.

Tool of the Week

  • Closing the Deal

    We all seek closure in important aspects of our lives—why not algebra? Student learning will benefit if you take a few minutes at the end of each algebra lesson to close the deal. Do students understand the purpose of the lesson? Do they have a sense of how it will lead to the next lesson? ...
