We are entering the 2017-18 school year and I look forward to establishing success with our students during the year. To our outstanding parents, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to educate your child and appreciate the support you give East Jackson and myself as we begin the new year!
We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.
If you have any questions about your student's IEP, contact Mrs. Cook or myself. We will soon begin with IEP's. We will contact parents 2-3 weeks in advance to set up a time on a specific date to go over individual education plans. The IEP's will run anywhere from 30-45 minutes. Within a week, parents will receive the full IEP documents either in the mail or given to student to be brought home. There is a breakdown of IEP information under my "Home" tab.
This year's set-up in our special education department includes Mrs. Cook, who will be teaching a 7th and 8th grade reading class and two ILH (Independent Learning Hours). Mr. K. will teach a language arts, math, two ILH, team taught math, and team taught geography classes. Anytime you have questions or concerns regarding your student’s academic progress or IEP, please feel free to contact me.
A few things about myself. I have been teaching at East Jackson for fifteen years, all in special education. When I'm not in the classroom I can be found on the cross country course, the gym, or the track, coaching a variety of middle school sports.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my wife, spending time with my family, and reading a good book. I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year. GO TROJANS!
