Hello my name is Stacey Burnam. I am an intervention specialist with a class of 8 students. 3 walk and the other 5 are in wheel chairs. All of them are non verbal and use various forms of communication at which one none of them are
After this planning bell I think I'll introduce you all to my students.
Hello, I'm Ms. Burnam welcome to my room.
I'm Ms. Mango, the classroom para.
Hello, We're her room para-professionals.
I'm Ms. C., I'm Manasseh's 1:1 para.
Everyday seems like planning bells are too short. I'm working at home for classroom work and using my planning bell for some type of meeting or personal debriefing time.
My classroom has 8 students ( 3 can walk, 2 independently 1 with assistance & 5 in wheelchairs). Demographics: ages 9-15. 3 boys, 5 girls, All non-verbal, multi-handicapped, all on medication of some sort. 3 eat purred breakfast & lunch and 5 are G-tube fed by nurse. 1 has a 1:1 para because he is a runner/escaped from previous classrooms. NONE of them are potty trained. All are often absent from school due to meal issues.
First time paras in MD classroom. They come from other careers. Mango was a social worker for JFS working with families of children with special needs. Ms. C was a case manager working with children in foster care/group homes.
