Today I speak with Patricia Padorsek, a Director of Teaching and Learning formerly of International School of Kuala Lumpur and now on her way to International School Nido de Aguilas in Chile. 

Our topic today is an important one. So many of us want to create and sustain change in our schools, especially in terms of inclusion and other issues we, as people who advocate for differently-abled individuals hold so dear. Patricia shares how we can help to create sustainable change in schools and ideas for us to try when the idea is not received well by others.

Patricia will also be a speaker at our upcoming speaker event where she and her colleague will discuss Universal Design for Learning, another important topic for us all.
