Health Education is coming to St. Matthew's. Students in both TSP-DD and AIIM will be participating in weekly health classes with Ms. Jane Shields.
Ms. Shields holds a BA from NYU in Dramatic Writing, an MS from SUNY Brockport in K-12 Health Education. Currently Ms. Shields teaches health in four different SW BOCES program sites and is passionate in providing health education to support students growth towards independence.
In the last few weeks, Ms. Shields has been busy introducing herself to all the students and getting to know their interests, personalities and assessing student health education needs.
In AIIM, students will be starting to work on identifying emotions. In our TSP-DD classrooms, students are starting a unit on relationships and sexuality and nutrition. Welcome aboard Ms. Shields!
