A Little about us...
We are fortunate to be a team who utilizes collaborative teaching with our special education teacher to provide an inclusive environment for all students. Co-teaching is an educational approach which delivers instruction based on the principles of inclusion. This practice encourages collaboration amongst colleagues and helps students with varying needs & learning styles understand and learn in the general education classroom with two teachers supporting their growth and progress.
