About the Teacher
Welcome! My name is Beverly Torrey. I am a Special Education Resource teacher at Academic Option Center. This is my eleventh year with the district. Each year, I am delighted to meet new faces and personalities in my class. I look forward to learning new things and growing with your children. I have worked with a range of children in special education. I have always been drawn to the teaching profession and would not want to do anything else.
This school year we will focus on social skills and reinforce skills in the general education classroom.
Learning skills can be hard sometimes, especially when we are learning many
new concepts! If your child is struggling with a concept and too shy to say anything, they
can anonymously write the concept they are struggling with on a sheet of paper and
put it in the basket! I will then re-teach that item to the class. However, if your child
does want to write their name on the sheet, it will be kept confidential from the other
students, and during Guided Study time I will work with the student one on one or in a
small group setting.
