I will be providing support for your child and their classroom teacher. While my main purpose is to support children with disabilities, that is not my only responsibility within the regular education classroom. In the general education classroom, I will be co-teaching with your child’s teacher. Co-teaching is when a general education teacher and a special education teacher share the responsibilities of planning lessons, delivering instruction, and assessing skills in the classroom. Co-teaching allows for ALL students to receive standards based education in a least restrictive environment.
I will be an active participant in your child’s daily schedule. I am fortunate enough to work with a great team of teachers here at Southington Elementary and I look forward to watching your child grow throughout the school year. I’m also looking forward to becoming involved in your child’s learning, and am even more eager to see how they influence me!
