8th Grade Special Education - Learning Support
8B - Genesis
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Newtown Middle School! I am the Learning Support Teacher on Team Genesis (8B) and will be your child’s IEP case manager this year. I have earned my bachelor’s degree from Bloomsburg University in Early Childhood Education Prek-4 and Special Education Prek-8. I have received an additional certification from West Chester University for Special Education 7-12. I have a huge passion for teaching and especially special education. I strive to empower each student with the effective skills needed to succeed in life. My goal is to show each student that no matter how big or far away something might seem, if they have a great passion and effort anything is possible.
Parents are their child’s first and most influential teachers. I believe that parent-teacher communication is very crucial in helping student’s succeed. When putting the two together we can develop a strong foundation for your child’s learning. Building a team will allow your child to be able to reach their maximum potential. My door will always be open should you have any questions or concerns throughout the year. I look forward to a wonderful partnership in your child’s education!
