Welcome to the Georgia OI Consortium. We are a group of teachers
that are certified to teach students with Orthopedic Impairments, a.k.a. Physical
and Health Disabilities. Our students are generally served in general education
classrooms or in self-contained classrooms for students with Orthopedic
Impairments. The OI Consortium meets four times during the school year in order to further our professional development as OI teachers. Due to our students’ unique abilities and their required instructional accommodations, it is
necessary that we maintain communication with one another throughout the school year so that we can continue to share resources and ideas even when we are not meeting in person. Therefore, the Georgia OI teachers blog will enable us to maintain a professional dialogue outside of our scheduled meetings. As a fellow OI teacher, please feel free to contribute to the blog as often as possible. And, please contact Judy Bytheway @ firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. Enjoy!
