Faculty Resources

    Dear CMC Faculty,

    Thank you for taking the time to peruse our web site. We feel very fortunate to be working with dedicated professionals such as yourself: individuals who are invested in the academic success of all of their students.

    It is hoped that the information found on these pages will be useful to you in your efforts to understand and educate students with disabilities. However, each student is unique and can present particular challenges to you as an educator. We invite you to contact any one of us at any time, to map out a strategy for working with a specific student. Although we have an obligation to protect the confidentiality of our students, we can obtain the student's permission to speak with you candidly.

    If you would like to meet with the ACCESS Coordinator or ACCESS Instructor, please call the ACCESS Program Assistant at extension 5861. She can direct you to the staff member who would be best suited for working out an academic strategy with you. If you know that one of us is working with your student, you can, of course, contact us directly.

    We very much look forward to collaborating with you on the success of our shared students.

    Jackie Hanselman
    ACCESS Coordinator
