PRESENTING CHERYL JORGENSEN... A Place Where Everyone Belongs: The Story of "Pedro’s Whale"

“More than anything in the world, Pedro loved whales. He loved big whales. He loved grey whales. He loved small whales. He loved blue whales. But most of all, he loved his whale. It made him so happy.” Pedro’s Whale, by Paula Kluth and Patrick Schwarz, is a children’s book about a boy who can be taught, comforted, and motivated when his special interest is brought into curriculum, instruction, and the classroom, in general. And oh by the way, Pedro has autism. In her presentation, Dr. Cheryl Jorgensen will use the theme and text of this book to describe the values and practices that make schools places where everyone belongs and no one is left behind.
