Welcome to the new school year! I am excited to be teaching your children this year. It is my determination that every student will grow and progress in the skills necessary to be successful in school. It is my belief that each student deserves to be challenged beyond their comfort zone in order to learn and generalize new skills. I will start with what each child can do with help, until it becomes an independent skill. Every student will have opportunities to experience success each day in an environment which provides structure, routine, and high expectations. My name is Kelly Kowatch and I teach in the Learning Center. I currently have 5 students. The teaching methods used in the class include both small group and individual instruction, we will work on social skills, academics, and self help skills
