Educators' Day to be held June 21
Jun 12, 2007

Olivet College’s Education Department and Office of Alumni Relations will hold an Educators’ Day Thursday, June 21. The event, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Mott Academic Center, will include four courses pertaining to the following topics: learning-disabled children; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; autism; and at-risk students. While the lessons relate to special education, all educators are encouraged to attend. The one-day session may be counted towards a one-hour college credit.

The instructors leading the sessions include three Eaton Intermediate School District employees: Kristal Hafner and Lisa Woodcock are school psychologists while Doug Derdowski is a consultant for autistic students and school social worker. He also serves as consultant for two districts in Eaton County and as a social worker at Meadowview, the center-based program with the school district. Derdowski is also a trainer for START (Statewide Autism and Resources Training) modules. Peter Riffle, the fourth instructor, is a special education and learning disabilities teacher at Wilson School District, West Lawn, Penn., and an adjunct professor at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Penn. He is the author of “The Cloud Chaser,” which is about teaching students with learning disabilities.
