My name is Patric Barbieri and I am the Executive Director of LABBB Collaborative. I started my career in LABBB in 1989 and before becoming Executive Director in 2007, I had the opportunity and privilege to experience many different positions in the collaborative including: Special Education Teacher, Educational Coordinator and Program Director.
One of my goals is to connect special educators around the world using social media to share best practices. I believe current special education practices need to be challenged and constantly evolve in the best interest of all students. To make this possible, LABBB is committed to connecting, collaborating and engaging with all educators to share and learn from each other. My blog is one contribution towards this effort.
I am fortunate to be surrounded by many talented special educators, support related service providers and administrators in LABBB who inspire, challenge and motivate me everyday.
