    What is Miss. Kratz's Role as a Special Education Teacher?
    1.  The most important role as a Special Education Teacher is to ensure that students who meet the requirements to receive special education services are provided with the support that they need.  This includes supervising the implementation of their IEP, parental communication, and teacher communication.
    2.  My second role is to serve as a team teacher for math at the 7th and 8th grade level. As a team teacher, I share the responsibility of teaching math with each math teacher.  Not only do we share the instruction, we also work together to assist each student within the classroom setting.  Please click on the links below to access the website of the teachers that I teach with.
    Questions about issues related to Special Education?  Here are a few pieces of information: 



    What is the job of a learning support teacher?

    The job of a learning support teacher is to collaborate with and communicate between families and staff, develop individualized programs (based on individual strengths and needs) for students who meet the requirements for special education services, and to effectively deliver the IEP.


    What is an IEP?

    At the heart of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was the development of an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  Development of the IEP is a collaborative process among parents, teachers, and staff working with your child.  The IEP includes your child"s present levels of performance, annual goals and objectives, specially designed instruction, and other areas applicable to your child"s progress.


    As a parent, how can I become an equal partner in the IEP process?


    You can become involved in the IEP process by:

    1.  Reviewing the IEP draft sent home prior to the IEP meeting. 

    2.  Informing your learning support teacher of any issues or concerns you would like discussed at the IEP meeting.

    3.  Attend all IEP meetings (scheduled at mutually convenient times) for your child.

    4.  Stay informed.  Visit websites such as   LDOnLine to better understand your child"s disability.
