Harkins, Janet (SPED)
Hi! My name is Jan Harkins and I'm very happy to be your child's teacher!!
I’m looking forward to a wonderful learning year, as we work together to help your child be successful. I have a Master's Degree in Severe Disabilities with emphasis in Deaf/Blindness from the University of Southern Mississippi. I love teaching and feel very fortunate to serve each and every student.
My basic philosophy is "if there's a will ~~~ there's a way".
I believe all students can learn, all students communicate and all have the right to choose. I believe there is always hope and that small miracles are the best!!
I believe all movements, signals, cries and gestures are a form of communication and that each individual has something positive and valuable to share with us.
If there's anything you need or if you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to a GREAT year!!!!
