Educator Voices: Planning for Transition

Transition is a topic that is most often addressed when students are in middle school preparing for the transition to high school and what our students will do when they are no longer our students. However, as most teachers and parents know, significant transitions occur throughout the school years. In my experience of an educator, this topic is one that although extremely important is sometimes neglected. In some cases, the focus on transition may fall into the category of “too little, too late.” Our discussion of transition issues will focus primarily on what transition means to students and families. We’ll also talk about how every teacher, regardless of level can help to facilitate transition.”
