Northwest AEA Family and Educator Partnership

I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Pam Woelber. I have worked for Northwest AEA as the family and educator partnership coordinator for the past 19 years. I have two children Zachary (27) and Toria (23). My daughter Toria was the reason I became a family coordinator. She received special education services all throughout her school years. Currently she is living and receiving adult services in a waiver home setting. I have learned a lot from my experiences working with teachers and service providers in advocating for my daughter. I am able to bring that experience in helping other families who have a child with special needs and are served by special education services. 

The mission of the Family and Educator Partnership (FEP) is to develop and sustain effective partnerships between families, educators, and community providers to promote success for students.

I work to bridge any gaps between families and educators by providing support, resources, and education.  

The following are resources available to families and educators provided by the Family and Educator Partnership program.
