Nadia Fiaz SED 201-03 10-10-10 Cyber Mentor Paper #1 My cyber mentor is Charles Corrigan, a special education teacher at Niles West High school in Skokie, Illinois.

help the student. I can relate to this because in the future I will be a part of a team like this and I find it fascinating to see how these teachers work together to come up with the best plan to help a student. The next part of my paper addresses how Mr. Corrigan collaborates with other teachers.
