This week we’ll be spotlighting Marshall Simonds’ new Special Education teacher, Michele Ganger. Ms. Ganger had this to say about her background and teaching goals for Marshall Simonds Middle School this year:

“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful team at Marshall Simonds Middle School!  This is my first year teaching in Burlington and I am happy to be part of starting the Bridge Program with such a great group of students and faculty.  I graduated from Fitchburg State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Sociology.  I received my Masters Degree from Framingham State University in Moderate Special Education with a concentration in grades 5-12.  I have worked as an aide in elementary school and high school, been an ABA Tutor and most recently, for the past nine years, taught high school life skills at Shepherd Hill Regional High School in Dudley, located in Southern Worcester County.  A couple of my personal interests are cooking for family and friends, going for walks, and listening to music.

This year, my goal at Marshall Simonds is to form a friendly and professional rapport with my students, making them want to come to school on a daily basis and be productive while at school. I am also trying to enforce the importance of putting forth your best effort and not worrying too much on the number of problems that are right or wrong on assignments. I am a firm believer that, whenever you try your best, it shows, and you do better on your work.  Another goal of mine is to help find ways to organize my students in an effort to alleviate some stress and anxiety from their daily lives.  I am looking forward to making this year a productive and positive one for all my students.”
