Special Education

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Resource team at Creekside Elementary consists of Resource Teachers​, a School Psychologist, Behavior Analyst,  Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, and SPED Para professionals. 

    The team provides services to students identified with special needs through a legal document called an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that is mandated within the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 

    Students receive support for a variety of reasons, which may include learning challenges, Autism Spectrum Disorders, speech and language difficulties, physical and/or emotional disabilities.

     Curriculum

    ​According to Federal law, students are provided with support services in their regular classroom whenever possible. However, in some cases, children may need additional or alternative instruction to improve their skills outside of the general education classroom.​

I started my career in autism education in 2011 at The Joshua School, Denver. I taught at TJS for three years working with individuals ages 11-15. During my time at TJS I helped open the new Boulder campus. In 2014 I transitioned to the public school system and taught an elementary ILC autism classroom in St. Vrain for two years. In 2016 I decided to take some time off to travel the world. I spent 8 months backpacking through South East Asia and a little over one month living and traveling in a camper-van in New Zealand! It has been a wonderful and life-changing experience but I am excited to return to my life passion career and join the Creekside family!! </span><br></p>
