Dear Samuels Families,
Please join me in celebrating and welcoming the addition of our new staff members, Teresa Ventura and Cassie Prouty! Teresa Ventura, our newest UNC Paraprofessional, will work with our Kindergarten ELA-S class. She brings several years of experience working with early primary-age children. Also, welcome Cassie Prouty who will be taking over our 5thGrade ELA-S classroom. Cassie has worked with intermediate-age students since 2014, and joins us after completing a year-long teaching apprenticeship at Godsman Elementary. Our staff continues to grow our capacity to work effectively with our children, and this work will continue during our Teal Days with valuable professional development in literacy, math, arts education, early education, physical education, special education and social-emotional learning! Did you know that our Wellness Team, which is largely funded by the voter-approved Mill Levy, has worked to serve students with intense and emergency mental health needs, regular distribution of essential medication, family psycho-education and support in small group sessions? These services have provided tremendous support for Samuels children and families.
