Subject or Grade: 7-8 Academic SCILLS
In Ms. Knight's ASCILLS class, students will participate in various activities designed to address their needs and give them opportunities to work towards reaching their IEP goals and benchmarks. All classes are taught through a highly modified academic skills curriculum which includes learning activities in the following areas: Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Unified P.E., Communication Skills, and Social/Emotional Skills.
I am from Denver, Colorado and moved out here when I was a senior in high school. I graduated from Arizona State University and have been teaching special education in the Gilbert School District for 17 years. I taught Functional SCILLS at the elementary level for 7 years, 3 years in junior high, and have been teaching Academic SCILLS for the past 7 years. I have also been "living" special education for 26 years because I have a wonderful, handsome, 26 year old son who has Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. We also have 3 amazing pets.....Maximus is our 8 year old English Bulldog, who is also an emotional support/therapy pet, Lolo is our rescue terrier mix, and Tebow is our orange tabby cat. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, running, golfing, boot camp workouts and watching and going to live sporting events.
