Joanna Doberstein has been awarded the staff of the month for September. Joanna is the teacher in the B.E.S.T. classroom. Entering just her second year as the teacher in that classroom, Joanna has done an amazing job creating a positive classroom culture. Working with our ASD population, including some non-verbal and aggressive students, most would agree that Joanna has one of the toughest jobs in the building. A visitor would never be aware of the challenges she faces on a daily basis based on her upbeat demeanor and positive attitude. Joanna has worked diligently with a number of B.E.S.T. staff members from around the Mid Atlantic region to modify her students’ instructional and behavioral plans. Joanna is always seeking additional information and looking for new interventions to help support the students in her classroom. Joanna’s dedication and commitment to her students and the program are second to none and we are thrilled that she is a part of our team!
