National Teacher Appreciation Week
Special Shout Outs
*Also, we'd like to take a moment to thank Ms. Poole-Ryan, who has stepped in to take over Ms. Brown's classes. As you all know, there are a whole set of different needs in a resource class, and Ms. Poole-Ryan has developed a great rapport with students. She also got wild and crazy the other day by creating a Kahoot with their science class. She has gone above and beyond what an interim sub would normally do, and we sincerely appreciate it!
*Thank you to all the LA and Math inclusion teachers who have had to keep their classes just rollin' as our EC teachers had to be out a little more than usual and unexpectedly.
*And thank you to the EC department! They have some major paperwork challenges this last month (and not by their own control or doing), and they have really worked together as a team more than ever to meet all the federal guidelines and deadlines. They have put in tons of extra hours and been at breaking points when CECAS decided to not work. They have been chained to their desks and conducted multiple IEPs in just a few hours time. These ladies have really been working hard. And we need to remember that behind every IEP, a child has a unique set of needs that the child deserves to have met by qualified teachers. These ladies have ensured that has happened.
