Portland, United States

Ambassador

Hello! My name is Brett and I am a special education from Portland, Oregon. I am the 2014 Oregon State Teacher of the Year and have been honored to be named an NEA Global Fellow twice. This year I will be traveling to both South Africa and Bangladesh to work with teachers and students. I also create Ability Guidebooks. These are step-by-step picture books to help people with autism get out into the community. There are 140 Guidebooks for 36 countries in six languages! I was very lucky to visit Finland and create several books for Helsinki. I hope I can find a teacher or classroom that would like to translate some of the books! I look forward to all the amazing educators I will be meeting as a HundrED Ambassador!
