My name is Francesca Cavallo and I am the special educator for grades 3, 4, and 5 here at BES! Last year I taught 5th grade and I am so excited to be making the switch to special education this school year. I think I have the best job because I have the opportunity to work one on one, and in small groups with the kiddos, which allows me to create extra special bonds and strong connections with students I work with. I am looking forward to working with some familiar friends and meeting new faces, as well!
My teaching philosophy focuses on the student not only as a learner, but as an individual. In my classroom we will work on academic, social-emotional, and behavior goals and celebrates the victories, no matter how big or small! Having worked in general education classes as both a paraprofessional and classroom teacher, I feel like I have a unique perspective and skillset to help students flourish in the most inclusive settings among their peers and be their best selves!
I am eagerly awaiting the start of this school year! Please always feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns. I am here for you and your child!
