Welcome to room 118

Hello! My name is Rachael Banz. I am the K-2 Special Education Teacher for students identified with Developmental Cognitive Disabilities. I have my Bachelors degree in special education and am licensed to teach students identified with Developmental Cognitive Disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities, Emotional Behavior Disorders and Physical and Health Disabilities.  I am currently working towards my Masters in Education. I started teaching in 2012 and have worked in many schools throughout the district.  This is my 2nd year at Bethune and I am very excited to work with you and your child.  In my classroom I focus on highly structured, individualized programming to meet students IEP goals.  I also work on communication, language skills, social skills, sensory activities and teaching positive behaviors. In addition, I work towards mainstreaming my students with their same age peers as much as possible.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this school year!
