Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!

I hope you have all had a safe and healthy summer break. I know that this has been a challenging time but I cannot wait to get back to working with your children virtually and in-person (when safe). I am excited to be your child’s resource teacher. Schedules and times for services will be shared with parents and students next week. Resource classes will begin on August 10th. This will allow the kids to adjust to their virtual general education classrooms and add resource classes the following week. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns. The best way to reach me is through email at ldidonna@laveenld.org. You can also reach me on my classroom phone at (602) 237-9120 ext. 3259. Below you will find a list of resources that can assist you and your child as you navigate through this distance learning journey
