I have two sections of this class. First period is for students who are juniors and seniors. Second period is for freshman and sophomore students.
If your student is in this course we will be building our skills in communicating through reading, writing and speaking. Our focus is on building practical skills students will need in life after high school.
I work to ensure students see how what we are doing in class relates to the real world information they will need during their daily life after high school.
We do also use various software programs — these programs allow students to work at an individualized pace and level tailored to their needs.
This is a course I co-teach with Mrs. Heather Ditch. It is a course meant to allow full inclusion and access for students of all abilities to build social connections, knowledge about artists with disabilities as well as disability culture, and explore various mediums for making art. Allowing our students to build connections with us and with each other is our ultimate goal for the course while ensuring all students in our class have meaningful interaction with various art mediums in an inclusive, accessible environment.
I can be found in my office located at the back of Rm 100C — either working with individual students or on programming, paperwork, or planning for students.
This is a course for students with an IEP in place to work on transition services, or career/vocational or self-help/independence goal areas. Students will explore interests, aptitudes and abilities, and practice some school based pre-employment skills in the classroom. When possible we will also provide students with opportunities to job shadow or volunteer in the community in order to gain that pre-employment experience. We will also work on independent living skills including laundry, basic cooking and cleaning, etc.

This is a structured, supportive environment for students with emotional/behavioral disabilities. Students in this class will be also be enrolled in general education class at the same time. Students will be given time to adjust to our classroom initially and then will be able to step into the general education classes as they demonstrate positive behaviors in our class. This ongoing classroom support will remain available to students of the class as needed throughout the year.
