M.A. Special Education
"I am so blessed that God has given me a ministry of working with special needs students and their families for over 20 years. I am a motivated teacher and counselor that provides support in a positive environment. I am adept at working within students' limitations while helping them achieve attainable goals. I specialize in teaching and working with students with neurological and emotional issues."
The L.E.A.R.N. Academy is based on the belief that every child is made in the image of God and is designed uniquely for God's own purposes. It has been created to help identify and track students who have learning disabilities and provide assistance as needed. We also act as a liaison for special services required. Some students may have very few needs, while others may have many. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of those in our student body that have been diagnosed with learning or emotional challenges, and this is done in the least restrictive environment possible. Students are guided and encouraged to produce their best effort, using the abilities God has given them to pursue their studies "as unto the Lord".
