Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Global Arts Plus 2020-2021 school year! I am a special education teacher in a self-contained classroom. I work with students in grades Kindergarten and 1st grade. We are supported by an incredibly dedicated and highly skilled para-professional team.
Students in our classroom work together on individualized academic, self-help, physical and social-emotional goals and objectives. Students join their grade level peers as much as possible for morning meeting, lunch, recess, specialist time (art, music, dance/drama), arts residencies, and field trips. All students in my classroom also attend Music Therapy and Adapted Physical Education.
During Distance Learning we will use the Seesaw app and Google Meet app on the student iPad. We will also use other apps, such as Unique Learning Systems and Raz Kids. Seesaw and Google Meet will not function properly from your phone or other devices, please use the school iPad for Google Meet and Seesaw.
We will meet daily on Google Meet as a group. Students will also meet with me and other IEP service providers (like Music Therapy, Speech, PT, OT, etc.) in small groups throughout the week on Google Meet. Schedules are posted each week Seesaw. The general schedule is posted at the bottom of this page.
Questions? Need Help? I will have regular, daily OFFICE HOURS on Google Meet (use student iPad) or we can find a different time that works for you for a phone call or a Google Meet.
A few quick things about me: I have a son in 8th grade here in St. Paul Public Schools and I love riding my bike, gardening, reading, and road-trips!
