We’re Back!


This gorgeous painting, called “Rise,” was made by Austin artist Starla Michelle for The Rise School of Austin. The Pre-K class of 2016 painted the canvas with the artist, and she turned it in to a masterpiece. The painting was eventually donated to be auctioned for the school.


It’s been over a year since a new post has shown up here! Our apologies for the lapse- but we have been up to some good work. Rachel has taken on a few different jobs, including a position with Johns Hopkins University and has been coaching teachers in Arkansas, leading them towards more collaborative and inclusive classrooms. Hannah, who will be taking over the writing for this blog, has been working as a Lead Pre-K teacher at the Rise School of Austin!

We also presented for a second time at SXSWedu last year, and will be speaking for a third time with professors from New York University. You can find out about our session- From Preschool to Pre-service: Expecting Inclusion- here.

If you are a local to Austin, or will be in town for SXSW, please consider attending our session or reaching out to us  for a coffee and a chat! Otherwise, stay tuned for more posts to come soon! Our new content will feature up-to-date strategies, research, and other happenings all about inclusion and collaboration to support students with special needs.

In the meantime, please check out this video showcasing The Rise School of Austin. It is pure inspiration about what inclusion can look like in early childhood.
