Hamden couldn’t be more excited to welcome Ms. Searles to the team this school year as she begins her Special Education teaching career! Ms. Searles took over the role of our K-3 classroom teacher and has worked quickly to build positive relationships with each and every one of our students. From her classroom décor to her detailed and creative lesson plans, she has created a nurturing, positive environment where students feel supported and safe. Ms. Searles is constantly finding new ways to motivate her students, from cute and colorful stamps on their work to innovative hands-on science projects. Her dedication is admirable, and staff and students alike are lucky to have her on our team!
“Ms. Searles goes above and beyond for her students, making each student feel special and important. In a short time, she has been able to make connections and build positive relationships with all the students in our program, not just in her classroom. I am so excited to see her grow as an educator.” – Ms. Serra, Operations Manager
