Making a Splash – Our New Model

Our Sierra- Grant staff and students are making a splash this year! Staff has created an environment where students are truly engaged in learning pre-academic, social, and life skills to take with them beyond the classroom. Ms. Jackie and her excellent team of staff have successfully implemented the BEST model where students are working on their individualized target skills throughout the day while also earning fun activities.

Meet the Team: Traresse Walker

Traresse Walker, Teacher During the day, I do my best to come up with new and innovated ways to keep my students engaged and interested in the material. My job is to teach, and that starts with gaining the interest of our students. Honestly, my entire class has had Little Victories so far this school year. They have progressed so far both academically and behaviorally just in the last couple of months. It’s really exciting to see happen! I would say that every student is unique, with their own individual challenges and obstacles to [...]

I have a student in class who is starting to change his behavior bit by bit. At first, he started to follow directions, then he started to ask for help when he needed it [...]
