SPED Songbird's Ode To IEPs Is Highlight of IEP Resources for Staff, Parents

Songbird Cynthia Holmes is a staffing specialist at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind. Her rich voice captures the reality of a SPED teacher's life—forever crafting individualized education plans (IEPs). This is a Holmes original score based on Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams." Cline was a celebrated county singer who was born in Winchester, Va. She had a difficult life that ended at age 30 in a plane crash.

The captioned video was prepared for a talent show held for participants at a 2012 educational conference. Hear the original "Sweet Dreams" by Pasty Cline here
