As a part of their interview series about the things that should be done to improve the US educational system, Authority Magazine recently interviewed Diane Myers. Authority Magazine discussed with Diane, the current state of the country’s education system, women in education, and highlights of her notable career in the field of education
Diane Myers serves as senior vice president, special education–behavior for Specialized Education Services, Inc. (SESI), a division of FullBloom, where she leads the company’s pedagogical approach to behavior practices. Her professional expertise and scholarship focus on positive behavioral interventions and supports (at the individual, classwide, and schoolwide levels), students with emotional and behavioral disorders, and training teachers in evidence-based classroom management practices.
“I have a lot of experience from several different perspectives, and I think that has served me well in terms of seeing the big picture and systems-level thinking. I’ve been a teacher, directly serving students with the most intensive needs; I’ve been a professor, preparing future teachers to serve those students and conducting research to improve the field; and now, I’m serving as a thought leader for a company that is committed to improving the futures of all learners, regardless of the challenges they face. All over the country, SESI partners with school districts to run in-district classrooms and stand-alone schools that meet the academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of students who need more supports than those provided in a traditional public school setting.”
