“Educating the mind without educating
the heart is no education at all.”
I am so excited to begin the 2019-2020 school!
For twenty years, I have worked as a special education teacher as well as classroom teacher. At St. John School I have taught kindergarten, third, fourth, and fifth grades. I am now taking on the role of a Learning Specialist on the Student Support Team. I will be working on teaching fundamental reading and writing skills to fourth to sixth graders. In seventh to eighth grades, we work on writing and executive functioning skills. The delivery model of services will range from working alongside the classroom teacher to pulling kids out and working in small groups for individualized instruction. Students will be monitored for progress over the course of year. As assessment data is gathered, the best model for instruction will be achieved and students will grow! I am a firm believer in empowering students to believe in themselves and their gifts from God.
Another part of my job will be to facilitate the new Makerspace that will open the end of September! More on this later!
