Welcome back to Boyet Junior High School! This is going to be an exciting and enjoyable school year! Each one of our students has specific goals and objectives which are going to guide each student toward academic and social growth during this 2017-2018 School Year!
This is my second year as a teacher at Boyet Junior High School in the RNC (Reduced Numbers Class). I received my B.S. Degree in Elementary Educatioin/Psychology, at Texas A&M University-Commerce, Texas in 1972. In 1986, I received my M.Ed. Degree at McNeese State University, Lake Charles, LA.
My teaching experience, over the past 40 years, has provided me the opportunity to have worked collaboratively with professionals in the field of Special Education using a seamless approach to develope, implement and monitor instructional programs for students with significant special needs. For the past 11 years, I have worked as a Teacher/Behavior Specialist, collaboratively developing and implementing appropriate educational programs for students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. My experience spans across Junior High, Elementary and High School levels. In 2001, I attended the TEEACH Autism Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, receiving "hands on" training related to Autism with concentration on currrent research-based strategies and best practices using Applied Behavior Analysis.
Our Boyet Junior High RNC provides each student with an individualized instructional program covering the academic content areas of Science, Social Studies, Math, English/Language Arts, Reading, Life Skills, as well as inclusion in the General Education Electives of ART, Chorus and/or Physical Education as determined by the student's respective Individual Education Plan, (IEP).
In closing, our goal is to provide you, as a Parent, with daily informative School/Home communication. Please let us know if you have a concern and we will make every effort to collaboratively work, as a team, to find an appropriate solution. We want your child to enjoy being at Boyet Junior High and every effort will be made for him/her feel a part of the positive learning environment here at BJH!
