This class is a part of the TEAMs program, which is designed to provide a functional academic education, communication, self-help, social, emotional, fine and gross motor, and pre-vocational/vocational programs to help students develop their skills in all of these areas. Students may be included in regular homeroom activities and other regular classes as deemed appropriate for the individual student by the PPT.
I have been teaching for 21 years - the last 10 here in Naugatuck. I received my undergraduate degree in special education from Southern Connecticut State University and my master's degree in inclusion education from the University of New England. In addition to my classroom duties, I am a cooperating teacher and a TEAM mentor. I love teaching both children and adults, and feel like I have the best job because I get to do just that! I am passionate about inclusion, which makes the Peer Partnership Program so special to me. It is my firm belief that everyone benefits from this program.
I am a special education teacher.
Not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or equal motivation, but they should have the equal right to develop their talent and ability and their motivation, to make something of themselves.
