“I wanted to help students while they were in high school—to reach them early in life, connect them with college, and help give them a foundation. I also wanted to assist parents who may be confused about the education process. I initially taught history as a substitute teacher, then switched to special education when I saw I could make a difference.
In our Student Services Department, we have a unique blend of teachers with vast experience who really care about our kids. I see the desire to help both in the classroom and in our communication to families. Our special education case managers and general education teachers go above and beyond.
I enjoy hearing parents thank our case managers after an Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting. This takes place at all grade levels. It’s exciting to me when parents brag about the experience they have at California Connections Academy.
