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.
