Murawski, PhD, is the Michael D. Eisner Endowed Chair and Executive Director for the Center for Teaching and Learning at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). She is a tenured Full Professor in the Department of Special Education, a past president of the Teacher Education Division (TED) for the Council for Exceptional Children, a former Teacher Educator of the Year for the state of California, and the recent recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Award for her university. She has authored 10 books, as well as numerous chapters, articles, and handbooks in the areas of co-teaching, collaboration, inclusion, differentiation, and teaching. Wendy owns her own educational consulting company (2 TEACH LLC), loves to travel and speak nationally and internationally, and is a frequently requested keynote speaker. This year, her 14-year old son Kiernan started high school and, as a former HS teacher, this petrifies her. Wendy and her fiancé, Donald, are trying to ignore the reality of passing time through travel, house projects, outdoor BBQs and movie nights, and even working out. It’s not helping. Kathy Lynn Scott, PhD, is the Center Administrative Analyst for the Center for Teaching and Learning at California State University, Northridge. Kathy was trained as an old school darkroom photographer, but she fell in love with all things to do with education. After conducting research on art education and adult education in England and coordinating research on learning disabilities in New Jersey, Kathy jumped from coast to coast, finding a new home with the CTL where she gets to do a little bit of everything related to education. When not acting as the “glue” for the CTL (as Wendy calls her), she’s happiest just relaxing at home, learning to cook new dishes, watching Jeopardy!, and shouting out the (not always correct) answers.
