5th/6th Emotionally Disturbed Contained Classroom Teacher StrawBridge School, United States of America, Baltimore, MD, June 2000 - June 2001
Strawbridge is a nonpublic school for students in grades 5 to 12. Using a state-approved curriculum, students are referred to this special school because disciplinary problems prevent public school attendance or due to various family crises. Each student is individually assessed upon entry so that their unique needs can be addressed, both academically and emotionally. The school is for students from surrounding counties, as well as for children and youth with special needs. I worked as the 5th/6th grade teacher for children placed in the on campus housing. The students were required to attend the Strawbridge School as their family or foster care situation was regulated by the state. After sixty days the students were placed back home or in foster care so my class was a transitional classroom. I created a safe learning environment that advanced each student to achieve their highest potential through my motivational academic program.
