My goal is to support each student to help them reach their full potential.
I am so excited to be working with your children this year. Not only, I am here to teach your child, but am also here as his or her advocate while they are at school. I plan to support you and work directly with the classroom teachers so that your child will progress academically as much as possible this year.
I have been teaching children with learning differences for 27 years. I have my Bachelor of Science degree in the field of Special Education from William Woods University, which is in Fulton, Missouri. This is my 18th year teaching at Savannah Christian. I have loved my time here and have been able to work with many students, some of whom have graduated from SCPS. I have two grown children of my own who both live and work in California. Even though it continues to be a challenge having them be so far away from me, it gives me more time to devote to my work here at school. Most mornings I arrive at school by 7:30. If there is a time that you need to see me, I am usually available before school begins. You may also reach me through my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or my cell phone (398-3807). Please feel free to come by my classroom, call, text, or drop me an email if you ever have any questions or concerns you wish to discuss with me. I will be sure to return phone calls or emails the same day I receive them. You can also keep up with my weekly spelling lists, reading, and math activities by going to my website which is jconnellyld.weebly.com
I also want you all to know that as a special treat to all the children I work with I give them a small piece of candy as they leave my class every day. If for some reason you would rather they not receive that treat please let me know and I will reward them in another way.
I plan to meet with all of you sometime before mid-term of first quarter and will contact all of you to schedule those meetings soon. Please be on the lookout for an email from me to get those meetings scheduled.
Thank you for all for your support and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
