I am honored to be starting my second full school year as the leader of Main Street School. I have a Bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Denver, a Masters degree in counseling from the University of Phoenix, and completed coursework for my Director of Special Education licensure at the University of Northern Colorado. I have worked in public schools, residential, and day treatment for a total of 17 years. Directly prior to my role at Main Street School, I was the SVVSD Truancy Program Coordinator. I am driven by the art of revealing to students the strengths they possess, and I especially love when students begin to demonstrate this same act with their peers. I am from the windy city of Chicago, IL; but, after my college experience at the University of Denver, I knew Colorado was my new home. I am married and have two teenage children who make me incredibly proud every day.
In the last year and a half, I have witnessed the dedication, tenacity, and passion for youth in the educators and staff at Main Street. Children with special needs require unique instruction by specially trained professionals to help them achieve their highest potential. Main Street accomplishes this with a combined partnership---with the students, staff, and families we work with. Beginning with rigorous academic instruction in the classroom, school social workers bolster students with direct instruction in social/emotional skills to support increased opportunities for daily success and the ultimate goal of transitioning back to a neighborhood school. Our support staff provide encouragement, praise, and reinforcement along the way; and, our families offer invaluable insight and support to the school team. In the 2014-2015 school year, approximately one-third of enrolled students returned to their neighborhood schools. We look forward to another successful year with even more learning opportunities.
If you are new to our school, welcome! And, thank you for joining us in the journey to achieve academic excellence by design for all students. If you have any specific questions about our school, please do not hesitate to ask.
