Welcome to Mrs. Melissa's class! 

We are going to have so much fun learning and growing together this year! I cannot wait to meet all of my new parents and students! 

Please take a moment to browse our class website. The links at the top of the page have lots of information for you about our classroom. Check out the announcements link often to get the newest updates! Also remember to sign up for our classroom reminders and social media. Check the link at the top of the page for that info. 

I will also be including any important forms here that you may need throughout the year. Currently, there are two Student Info forms under the link. Feel free to print those off, fill out, and bring to school during Meet the Teacher.


About Our Class 

This is a self-contained Special Education class. I will be implementing a station teaching routine similar to that of the general education classes, but within a smaller classroom environment with strong teacher support. This provides students with individualized education opportunities to meet their specific needs and goals. The stations will focus on Phonics, Reading, Writing, Math, Fine and Gross Motor Skills, and Life Skills. The Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards and each student's IEP goals will be reflected in these stations. We will also be continuously working on social, behavioral, communication, and emotional skills during the day.

Every student in my classroom will also be given opportunities to socialize and learn with their peers in a general education setting on a daily basis. 

My main goal as your child's teacher is to help them grow as a person, and to facilitate that growth with an abundance of educational opportunities that meet their personal needs. I feel truly blessed to be given the privilege of working with your child!
