Hello and welcome to the 2018/2019 school year!
This is my 7th year teaching at Buljan Middle School, and I am extremely excited to be a Bulldog!
I am excited to be the 6th-grade Resource Specialist this year I have previously taught 7th-grade RSP and 6th,7th and 8th Grade SDC. The role of the Resource Specialist is to provide students on IEPs with support in their mainstream classes, as well as work towards the IEP goals that were established at their last annual IEP meeting. Support can be in the form of extra help in the classroom, small group instruction in Study Skills, monitoring the use of a daily planner, assistance with organizational skills, and communicating/collaborating with the general education teacher about IEP progress/accommodations/modifications. The level of support depends upon a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
I truly believe ALL students can achieve at high levels with the right guidance and support.
I am excited about this school year and am looking forward to helping your child accomplish their goals!
Please contact your student’s teacher for any questions regarding their class, assignments/tests, due dates or curriculum. However, if you have specific questions about your student’s Individualized Education Plan, please contact me. It is important for you and your student to get familiar with logging into PowerSchool to view grades, assignments and test scores. Middle School is a time of growth, change, and new experiences. Self-advocacy and independence are crucial to begin learning at this time so students can move forward in their educational journey with confidence and success.
Cheers to a great year!!!
