Niel Albero comes to CAST as a UDL Implementation Specialist, working with school based teams, through the UDL Academy, to develop understanding around the UDL framework and customize their experience to their context. 

As an educator for 20 years, Niel has worked in Special Education, Middle School Mathematics, and as an Instructional Coach.  He is most passionate about Engaging all Learners and designing Learning Environments that reduce barriers for students. 

Niel has led professional development workshops on reaching all learners, strategies to engage learners through classroom discourse, and mathematics content institutes.

When not at CAST, Niel enjoys cooking authentic Italian cuisine with his three sons and is an avid baseball fan.  He strives to stay up-to-date on Newbury Award winning childrens’ books so he can connect with students and build their enthusiasm and love for reading.

One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money was in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a better place because I was important in the life of a child.
