                             “Disability is a matter of perception.  
                              If you can do just one thing well,
                              you're needed by someone.”  
                              ~ Martina Navratilova
     
               
     
     
    My goal as the HS CrossRoads Transition Teacher, along in partnership with parents and the community, is to provide a learning environment that develops the potential of students within the Low-Incidence, Emotional Support and Autistic Spectrum Disorders population, by use of  a multi – structured approach to addressing their individual needs. My overall goal is to maximize student independence, gain vocational skills through community-based work environments and improve their quality of life to be successful adults in our local community. My program provides transition skills from student to adult life for individuals with a disability turning 18 years of age whom are graduating high school and/or which have chosen to gain additional transition skills up to possibly age 21.
