Dear Parents and Students,
Hello. I am Mrs. Jensen and will be your child's teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I have been teaching for over a decade, most of my teaching career has been in Bridgeport Public Schools. In my classroom, the focus is on life skills and vocational skills. This is a self-contained special education program with a low student-teacher ratio and two paraprofessionals assigned to the classroom to support the students. The class participates in general education electives, lunch, and school activities with their general education peers. Any students or class transitions and activities outside the classroom are supervised by the teacher or a paraprofessional. The class goes on community outings three to four times a week with the supervision of a teacher and paraprofessional. In class, the students participate in individualized, small group and whole group activities based on the goals and objectives of their IEP.
I look forward to working with your child in the upcoming school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out. I would be glad to assist you.
Mrs. Jensen-Special Education Teacher
Bassick High School
