Welcome class of 2018!
I am excited to begin another year of teaching. In 2014 I began with a new group of freshmen and I will work with them until their graduation in 2018. During that time I will have the opportunity to work with students to help them through each school year, developing the skills and self-awareness they will need to help them grow and prepare for life in high school and beyond.
The goal of learning support class is to provide support and help students develop the skills that they need to successfully access and make progress in the high school curriculum in addition to preparing them for success in their post-secondary endeavors.
Individual goals and needs-
Students will work to improve in areas specifically outlined in their IEP. The often fall into one or more of the following areas
• Study or test taking strategies
Remediation of academic skills
Remediation and improvement of academic skills to prepare students for high stakes testing including, but not limited to the Keystone Exams, the SAT, Accuplacer, or ASVAB.
• Post-secondary planning: Students will complete specific activities to explore their interests and their post-secondary options for either work or continued education. They will receive guidance in working to develop realistic post-secondary goals and plans to work toward those goals.
• Self-advocacy: Students will understand their disability. They will develop an understanding of their strengths and needs.Additionally students will work to increase their independence but also learn how and where to seek assistance when it is needed.
Student will have the opportunity to receive help on current academic assignments, projects and preparing for assessments.
