Coordinator of Special Services


I am excited to be a part of the Red Jacket family!

Hi! My name is Jane Stockton-Kobos and I am the new Coordinator of Special Services. I am coming to Manchester-Shortsville with over 15 years experience teaching in the field of Special Education. I am committed to meeting the individual needs of ALL students in order to promote opportunities for success. Because of my leadership experiences, my passion for teaching has expanded. I realized that as an Educational Leader I can positively impact more students by collaborating and teaching staff. My past experiences teaching students with behavioral and/or cognitive disabilities has helped me understand the time and effort it takes to provide effective instruction as well as meet the individual needs of student. Right now, more then ever, we need to be providing students with rigorous and relevant instruction that will prepare them to graduate as a next generation learner. These two factors influenced my passion for becoming an administrator in the field of Special Education.

As I start my journey here at Red Jacket, it is essential that I first listen, learn and understand all aspects of the school district. Only then can I utilize my skills and knowledge to support and enhance the learning opportunities for ALL of our students. I look forward to meeting you all very soon.
