Mrs. Violet McKain

Hello, I am the ASD teacher for math and Science at Bassick High School. I have been teaching at Bassick for 7 years. Prior to working at Bassick I taught at Eleanor Rosevelt High school in Maryland, a blue ribbon school for 14 years. My assignment there was teacher of the gifted students with learning needs. I also taught in Central America and the Caribbean.

I enjoy teaching the ASD population and have had many of my students graduating and moving on to colleges and other post secondary institutions as well as to other transitioning programs. Many of my students have also moved on to obtaining employment in the workforce.

In my class students are treated with respect and are challenged. They are encouraged to become more independent and to work together as a community to achieve their goal.
