I am very interested in factors that are related to the retention of special education teachers to their positions in rural schools. I think that support is a critical component of this and in small schools sometimes that support comes from general education teachers. Collaboration and a wide array of co-teaching models (GE & SE) can be used to provide a sense of "shared responsibility" so special educators don't experience professional isolation in a potentially supportive environment.
