Teacher Spotlight: Melissa

Melissa Dirzius, Special Education Teacher & Art Teacher at B.E.S.T. Academy. began volunteering with special needs students in High School. After considering several other fields she continued her education, finding that the combination of the creativity of programming and assessing our students, along with the personal time spent educating each one individually, allowed her to see their little victories were exactly what she wanted to do .

Melissa discusses the impact our students have on her every day and what it means to see their success at school and hear about their success at home from our families.

Transition Planning for Life Beyond School

All of our schools offer a comprehensive transition program for students in grades 9–12 and age-out students. These students participate in an active and exploratory curriculum that combines classes required for graduation with vocational experiences and a work readiness program that provide instruction and support in developing the basic skills needed to succeed in today’s workplace.

Each student’s transition program is individualized per that student’s specific talents, interests, skill levels, and needs, and may include such targeted areas of instruction and coaching as professional hygiene, job interviewing skills, taking on-the-job directives, and appropriately responding to both common and unexpected scenarios.
