Ms. Shamada Ridgel
Hello! I am a Special Education teacher at Mason School of Academic and Cultural Literacy. I work with 4th- 6th grade students. I have been with Mason for 5 years.
A little bit about me: I have worked in special education as a paraprofessional with Saint Louis Public School for 11 years. This is my first year as a Special Education teacher. My mission is to help all students according to their needs and make them life-long learners in an educational classroom and their own community. Having a safe, positive, and consistent atmosphere is essential for a successful learning environment. It is for this reason that social behavior skills are an integral part of the curriculum in my classroom. Behavior is a form of communication and students will learn positive methods to communicate with one another and with staff members.
If you have a question or concern, please feel free to email me at any time. I will do my best to answer emails at my planned time, which is 8:10-9:00 or immediately following school.
