About StaceyL

I am an educator, assistive technology specialist, behavioral consultant, parent advocate, with a big mouth especially for the underdog. I've instructed teachers, principals, school board members and children. My favorite hands down, the kids!! Equality, fairness, opportunity, support, candor, and IDEA. I've spent the better of two decades ensuring that students and their families not only received everything that was entitled to them under the law. I stood by the parents making sure their voices were always in the forefront. Unfortunately in schools today parents are being strong armed into placing their children in classrooms, programs, and alternate schools. This needs to stop. The priority and focus needs to be the student and I have and can help making sure that happens. Popularity isn't a concern of mine I've been disliked by many principals, school boards and school district attorney's however I was always right by doing what was in the best interest of the students and their families. Is your child struggling in school either academically, socially perhaps both? Are you having trouble communicating with school and district staff? Do you feel out numbered? Are you sure your child is receiving ALL the services they are legally entitled to? As an advocate for parents, students, even educators I know the "lingo", the laws, behavior modification, social skills, creating IEP's, even academic techniques. I've successfully worked with families since 1997 turning negative collaborative meetings into successful relationships focused on student success. Don't spend another minute worrying if your child is receiving the minimum requirements. Don't sit through another meeting feeling hopeless. Don't worry every time the phone rings I will work with you, your child, the teachers, specialists, and school district personnel. I can and will help you and your child have a successful educational experience. They are entitled to this under the law. Stacey Landau staceyslifeblog@gmail.com It takes one person to make a wave but many to rock the boat. I'll rock it all by myself if I need to and I guarantee that I will always stay afloat when it comes to advocating for families. Personally: I am a single mother of a child I adopted when he was enrolled in my therapeutic/academic program. After nearly two decades fighting the system as an employee I have decided to focus solely on advocacy. Knowing the ins and outs of the system enables me to fulfill my passion and need to encourage equality for children and their families. Failure is not an option when it comes to children, period. Advocacy feeds my soul. I'm a sister, daughter, friend, pug lover, baker, chocolate worshiper, NY Giants fan (don't hate), shopaholic, and fundraiser. I love learning new cultures, anything pretty and sparkly, excursions with my friends and helping people. Stacey staceyslifeblog@gmail.com

19, Again?

I am not sure how or why this came about but it’s stuck with me since I was 19 years and 11 months old. Most people have a difficult time with 40, 50 and so only however for me (go figure) I had/have an irrational fear of turning 20 and beyond. Continue reading

Hooking Up

Do you want to hook up? Now, now everyone keep your pants on, for now anyway. I am talking about a blog hook up. Our blogs have minds of their own and I think they are getting lonely and could use some company.

Take a look at this page and let’s hook up!

Are you like everyone else complaining about it being Monday, the colder weather and everything you needed to get done yesterday? Stop and watch this for a good laugh.

Pass along because we take ourselves way to seriously.
