Mrs. Paula Collie-Dement

This is my 24th year of teaching.  I taught World Geography at the high school level for 20 years.   After this, I decided I needed a change in my career so I became Special Education certified.  With that being said, I have taught 6th, 7th, & 8th grade Resource ELA & Resource Reading.  I was also the case manager & inclusion support for 6th grade special education.  I also handled 5th grade Resource ELAR & Resource Math as well as being their case manager & inclusion support for 5th grade special education.   I have also worked with 2nd - 5th grades.  With those grades, I handled inclusion support, provided one-on-one support, FOCUS assistant, and SMART ISS.  Finally, this year I have been given the priviledge of working at East Avenue with the 1st & 2nd grade Life Skills students.  After all of the various levels I have worked with, I must say I enjoy working with my life skills students the most.  Everyday is different for them and regardless of what occurred the day before, everyday is a new day.
