Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) are agents of change, charged with the responsibility to facilitate paradigm shift from traditional to inclusive models of educational theory and practice. With seven years experience in an RTLB role I have come to the realisation that if there is congruence between a practitioner's value and belief system and the ethos that underpins inclusive pedagogy, the journey of change will likely be a seamless one. When there is incongruence the journey is quite often a much more difficult one; however, if successful, in terms of achieving paradigm shift, is a journey worth sharing with others.
