Growing up all I personally craved was being included and having great friends in my life. Today’s guest has a strong passion for inclusion and removing attitudinal barriers. Maggie Fay is an educator in Ontario, Canada, where she teaches students with Autism and Developmental Disabilities.
Before Maggie became an educator, she started her career in the field of disabilities as a support worker, educational assistant and running a government funding program for adults with disabilities. When Maggie teaches, she thinks about her own boys and how they would want a teacher to respond to them, acknowledge them and treat them.
This year Maggies received the Award of Excellence and was truly honoured to be recognized for my dedication and a strong belief in equity and inclusion.
