I am one of two Special Education Teachers
for Moose Hill Kindergarten. My official title is "Inclusion Teacher".
This title reflects our educational model at Moose Hill: All students
participate in the general education program to the maximum extent
possible given his or her specific learning needs.
have many talented individuals working within the Special Education
Department at the Kindergarten level. Team members include a Speech
Pathologist and an Occupational Therapist to address the specific needs
of children in the areas of speech and language and fine/gross motor. A
Physical Therapist also serves children with gross motor needs.
program's success depends upon the highly skilled Special Education
Assistants in our department. Our assistants are assigned to specific
classrooms to address the learning needs of individual children as
stated in their I.E.P.'s. These wonderful Paraprofessionals have
attended many, many training opportunities (often on their own time!) to
prepare them to execute and enhance activities that promote growth in
the educational "Goal" areas for each child assigned to them. Our
Educational Assistants are the BEST teachers in the world!!!!
