Welcome Back to the 2013-2014 school year. My hope is that you have had time to spend with family and that your student is rested and ready to learn. My role as your child's ESE teacher has changed slightly from last school year. Since all ESE students are included in the general education classrooms, both Mrs. Lucas, my Instructional Assistant and myself will be servicing the students in grades K through 3rd throughout the school day within the general education classroom setting. Rest assured that your student will continue to receive the level of support needed within the general education classroom; as well as those accomodations that require a small group setting outside of the general education classroom. As always feel free to contact me through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 636-5801 Ext. 5027. I ask that you continue to encourage your student each day. Thank you in advance for making sure homework and classroom practice is important.
