EXTENDED RESOURCE CAREER PREP ENGLISH and OCCUPATIONAL PREP TEACHER

About Me

This is my thirty-seventh year in teaching, both in general ed and special ed classrooms.  I am a San Diego, California transplant who misses the beach, but loves the small town feel, big city amenities of Boise.  This is my eighth year teaching the Extended Resource Class at Capital High. I really love coming to work every day and working with the kids in this program. I believe that everyone can and should be allowed to reach their full potential. I expect all students in my program to put forth their best effort every day in every class.



About Class

All assignments are completed in class unless there is an extended absence.  Students can practice using their language arts skills by reading the newspaper at home, reading to a younger sibling, or just reading a book or magazine for fun. They could also practice writing skills by writing letters, making shopping lists, writing directions, etc.


Occupational Prep Program in the afternoon prepares students to become good employees. Sophomores work on life skills and job skills on campus.  As students prove themselves capable of following directions from a job coach they move to supervised jobs off campus two days a week, then four days and finally are placed as independent workers, when appropriate.


On Friday afternoons students participate in community outings, community service or on-campus speakers or activities. (Students with behavior issues that week, missing assignments or excessive absences may not be able to attend.)
