About Me

This year is the start of my 8th year working at West Creek Middle. I have 16 years of experience teaching Special Education, but every year seems as it is my first. As a Special Education Teacher, you know that you are incessantly required to plan and collaborate with numerous professionals on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. For me, this is what makes the job so rewarding, so interesting, and so fun. I look forward to helping my students take another giant step,in growing to become independent. The BEST part of my job is when the students make me smile and laugh.

We are so excited for this upcoming school year and we are so happy to see all of your children’s faces back at school! I hope you all had a wonderful summer. In the back to school letter I sent home,there is included a couple sheets in the packet for you to read, fill out and sign, and send back to school. Please do that as soon as possible so we can get started with all of our activities. I know it seems like a lot, but I believe that the students will benefit the most when the parents and teachers are on the same page. I value your opinions and knowledge about your child, and I want you to be up to date with what we are doing at school.

Included in the packet are:

1.Supply List

2.Child Survey (if you feel I have all this info, please omit)

3.Photo Release Forms (classroom, school, ect.)

4.Community /Field Trip Form

5.Hygiene Release Form

Also, here is the supply list for the year. Please send your supplies to school as soon as possible. Remember, we use a lot of these materials to keep our classroom clean and healthy. This is beneficial to us all.

Supply List:

1. 1- 2 ½ in. 3 ring binder

2. Headphones or earbuds (your child’s preference)

3. 1 zipper pencil bag that will fit in the 3 ring bind

4. Colored pencils

5. Adult size scissors

6. Toothpaste, and Toothbrush

7. 1 box of Kleenex Tissue

8. 1 pack baby wipes

9. 2 Containers of Clorox wipes

We will attend a regular education PE class, and will change for this, so your child will need:

1. A box or plastic container of Laundry soap

2. Deodorant

3. T-shirt

4. Dark shorts.

5. An extra pair of socks, and tennis shoes, if your child wears a different pair of shoes to school, students will keep the items at school and will wash PE clothes every Friday.

6.Light weight jacket ( building gets cold sometimes )

Also, the school will soon be handing out a West Creek Planner. This will be where we will communicate. We will also be sending out a Monthly Newsletter.
