"After 4 IEP meetings in the last 36 hours, I'm exhausted, but can't even put into words the elation I feel from getting kids the services and supports they need! Catherine Whitcher, thank you so much for your kindness, wisdom, and helping me fulfill my passion of helping IEP teams work together collaboratively and build inclusion for every child. I'm so happy to be on this journey with you! "

"Just left an IEP meeting. It was awesome to be in a room with a team who was willing to see the positive. When I was leaving, the Special Education Director pulled me aside to ask how we could collaborate more. She said she's never worked with some one who could support parents and be so willing to collaborate. She thanked me and when I got to my car I cried. Being a Master IEP Coach is exactly where I'm supposed to be."
