Hello Everyone!! My name is Jessica Rathkopf. I am a PPCD teacher. PPCD stands for Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities. I believe that ALL children CAN learn. My classroom is full of positive reinforcement and encouragment. I focus on my students abilities and strengths in order to build upon developing skills. When communicating I use a whole language approach. (Sign, visuals, and verbal speech)
This is my second year in PPCD at Rountree. I have experience with 2nd grade special ed and I taught 3rd grade as well. I spend my free time with my 3 children and 2 dogs. I also enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and camping.
I can't wait to get to know all of you! I am looking foward to the 2018-2019 school year!
