Ms. Tomeika M Stokes
Welcome To "#TEAM SOURCE."
My name is Ms. Tomeika M. Stokes, and I am the Resource Teacher here at GATEWAY MST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL......Come meet with me Virtually in RM: 169 Microsoft Teams Street.
This is the place where we will learn how to work on our "MINDSET FOR SUCCESS." I will be working with the General Education Team to collaborate strategies that will creat goals that match grade level curriculum, and this collaboration includes you, the parent. This Team helps with student success.
Now on to how I became the Teacher that I am today.........
The passion to be involved in the field of education started with my firstborn. I was his first teacher and advocate to ensure that he would be successful in kindergarten and the rest of his school career. This started with a good early childhood beginning. The preschool program in our district was where my children attended and where I got my start as an assistant teacher. I have spent twenty plus years sharpening my skills in Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education. Within that time period, I became an advocate for MPACT, an agency free to parents of students with Individual Education Plans(IEP) to ensure they knew their students' rights. I continued to participate in my children's education volunteering and attending college to become a professional at what I enjoyed. I chose k-12 Special Education over the Early Childhood field. I spent my first certified position as a High School teacher at a therapeutic school and just finished the 2019-20 school year serving here as a 5th grade Cross Categorical Self-Contained classroom instructor. As mentioned above, I am now the new Resource Teacher(Rm: 169) I am looking forward to this 2021-22 school year being a year of Success. We work better as a TEAM..........
I look forward to each school year to serve the parents and students to prepare them for where they are in their school journey.
