Special Education Teacher

All services are delivered through our Intensive Intervention Center-based Program, which is a self-contained classroom designed for children with significant social, behavioral, and emotional needs under the guise of serious emotional disabilities. This is a small group setting with increased staff-to-student ratio. Direct and indirect supports both in and out of the general education setting are provided by and under the direction of the Special Education Teacher.  We support our students in the following areas:  Academic Performance;  Functional Academics;  Emotional Well Being;  Group Behavior;  Hyperactivity/Impulsivity;  Inappropriate Behavior;  Interpersonal Relationships;  Listening;  Motivation;  Organization;  Rules and Expectations; and Social Interaction.  Utilizing a leveled behavior system, we help students to self-regulate emotions, shape behaviors, and learn general education skill sets.  We also aide students in boosting their self-confidence and self-esteem, developing a positive mental attitude.  

Our children learn to SOAR like eagles!

The Optimist Creed ~ Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
