Josh Berez – Nominee, MITC 2021 Hero Award
Josh is a behavior therapist at ALL Academy in Connecticut. He serves every day with compassion and is always looking for innovative ways to improve classroom protocols and advocate for students. Josh’s initiative and consistent thinking ahead helped make last year’s remote learning effective. Josh jumped in with his tech skills to help students and their parents make the transition successfully, from teaching them how to use the software to resolving conflicts before they escalated. Josh is very perceptive and notices when students are attempting to communicate in ways that might not be recognized by others. He utilizes these opportunities to build connections between students and teach new skills.
