Introducing The Intentional IEP

Imagine if you looked at your teacher self 3 months from now and saw a teacher unscathed and overcome with clarity about the IEP writing process and had a system that worked.

How would that feel?

Flashback to the end of May 2019. I was having a conversation with another teacher friend about how I wanted to help teachers write better IEPs for their students. Not only that, I wanted to help teachers write compliant, rockstar IEPs quicker than ever before so that they can spend less time working, and more time living.

After sitting on the idea for a few weeks, The Intentional IEP was born.

You see, I love the paperwork that comes along with being a special education teacher. I love taking data on IEP goals and student mastery. And I love helping other teachers.

But I also know first hand how little “extra” time we have during the school day. I know how much work we take home each night against our own better judgement. And I know how frustrating and overwhelming the whole IEP writing process can be.

Intentional. “Done with a purpose. Deliberate.”

The Intentional IEP.

TII allows me to help you, teach you, and give you more of your time back so you can do more of the things you love inside and outside of the classroom.

The Intentional IEP can be accessed on any device that has internet access!

Writing IEPs doesn’t have to be a daunting task.

 As a dual-certified special education teacher, I admit that the paperwork can be overwhelming. And I admit that I feel like special education teachers are not given enough time in a day to teach and also effectively manage the paperwork.

It’s not impossible, but it’s almost feels like we are set up for failure.

TII is here to announce that you can write stellar IEPs in less time than ever before, and The Intentional IEP is here to help. We want to protect your valuable time so you can be there for your students and do what you do best – teach.

But what is the Intentional IEP?

Together with The Intentional IEP Team, a combined education experience spanning 200+ years across Pre-K to High School in all special education settings, we have developed an actively growing IEP goal bank full of thousands of prewritten IEP goals. Get ready for it… there are currently over 9,000+ pre-written IEP goals for you to search within The Vault and use in your students’ IEPs.
