Angelica was well-organized, and provided a lot of useful information. I especially appreciate her clarification of the difference between "accommodations" and "modifications".

As a special ed teacher I think the most important thing for a new teacher to know is the specific disability of the student and how they learn best. I think Angelica did a great job explaining this.
