I am Mrs. Abby Barnes-Pence in Room 214. This is my eighteen year as a teacher at Harrison Elementary School. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call school or to email me (I will respond to you within 24 hours). I am looking forward to a successful year!!!!
Welcome to 2019-2020 school year and Room 214!! The Resource Program is for students who qualify under Federal Guidelines for Special Education. These students have been identified as having developmental delays, specific learning disabilities, behavior impairments, or other health impairments. Their placement is determined by a Multidisciplinary Team.
The resource room utilizes direct-instruction, data-driven, student-focused, scientifically-based educational objectives and outcome-based assessment to provide a positive, pro-active learning environment for select students at Harrison Elementary.
Students will remain in their classrooms all day, with few exceptions. The resource team (Ms. Johnson, Mrs. Bowden, and myself) will be in the classrooms with the students, helping them to increase their academic and interpersonal successes. We live by the philosophy that it takes parents, students, and staff to achieve greatness.
