Happy New Year! It was a busy end of 2018 for the students; they worked very hard during Skills class to finish their business plan projects and get ready for their presentations. I was able to see many of the students do their presentations and they did an excellent job! I know that several of them were nervous about presenting but they rose to the occasion and were very professional.
We are starting the New Year with a new team member. Mrs. Fourcade our team aide resigned her position as of December 21 and has moved to France with her family. I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Sandra Thornton has been hired to fill the position and she began working with us this week.
In class, we continue to review current concepts and preview new concepts when new units begin. I have found that although the students know that they have tools/resources available to them (some that are team based, some that are part of their IEP accommodations) they do not consistently use them. I have asked for their input as to what they would like to have me change/redesign. I am hoping that I will begin to see more consistent use of these tools as the new materials are created.
I continue to be available for after school help on Monday and Wednesday until 3:30.
