Hello! I am so excited to start my sixth school year here at McMillan Junior High as a special education teacher in a Functional Academics in a Structured Environment classroom (FASE)! This instructional program provides a highly structured, self-contained environment for students to meet their academic, communication, functional, and behavioral goals. Their learning is individualized and appropriate for each student's developmental and functional level. I am fortunate to have the best support staff in my room to work with your student! Our days consist of direct teach, independent work, technology work, leisure, two class meetings, two yoga sessions, a social skills game activity, lunch, snack, jobs, cooking, and Partners in PE. We love to participate with peer buddies during this unique and rewarding PE class! Additionally, we enjoy having peer buddies in our class to play board games and socialize throughout the day!
I utilize the Remind and ClassDojo apps to enhance school/home communication. Parents will receive access to both of these apps in August. At that time, if you have not yet accessed our class, please contact me for the access codes. I look forward to working with your student and collaborating with you throughout the school year!
