Welcome to our class webpage!  We are one of three self-contained special education classes at East Coldenham.  We are a 12:1:1 class, meaning that we have no more than 12 students and we have one full-time paraprofessional.  The students in our class range from kindergarten to second grade.
    I am a New York State certified teacher for both special education and elementary education, and am certified in literacy.  Our paraprofessional is Mrs. Emily Quiroa.  She has been a paraprofessional in the district for the last 18 years.  This year, we also have the help a 2:1 paraprofessional, Mrs. Julie Cavanaugh, and two 1:1 paraprofessionals, Miss Catherine Henry and Mrs. Shirley Jefferson.  Our class is lucky to have the valuable help that all of these women provide!
    Please tour through the site to learn more about a typical day in our classroom and to see some of our students engaged in their learning activities.

    Puzzles are always a favorite choice when the students have finished their work.  Doing puzzles helps build visual-spatial skills and attention to detail.
