I am the Herzog special education teacher. I work with children in grades K-5 who require support that an IEP can provide. I believe all children can learn, but the way they learn can depend on a lot of factors. I believe in teamwork- with parents, students, and colleagues to help children achieve their potential. I believe in high expectations- for myself, for my students. I believe that Herzog students are the most amazing kids and I love working with all of them!
In our classroom, we use the school-wide behavior management system (Positive Behavior Intervention System) where students are encouraged to ROAR throughout the day. ROAR stands for RESPECT yourself and others; OWN your own choices; ACT safely, and be READY to learn. I encourage all parents who work with me to join our Class Dojo account.
