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.
