Welcome to Canton Educational Service Center. My name is Mr. Turner, and I will be the Exceptional Ed Teacher.
I hope that you and your children have had a fantastic summer break and that you are off to a great start for the 2015-16 school year here in Canton Educational Service Center! This is my 3rd year at CESC and I am very happy to be here and I’m looking forward to working with all of my students. As the exceptional education teacher, I will be working hard to help him/her make significant academic progress in a safe, structured, and positive environment. I will maintain regular communication with the general education teacher and I will keep parents informed with regards to the child’s progress.
I strongly believe that parents and teachers must work as a team to ensure that the children get the most they can out of each school year. You can help by:
♦ creating a daily 15-30 minute silent reading time with a book of his/her choice that is not difficult to read.
♦ taking your child to the public library often.
♦ discussing what they have read and asking questions about their school day in general.
♦ reading to your child and having them read to you regularly.
♦ helping your child with homework, as well as signing and returning completed work or notes from the teacher.
♦ calling or writing a note to the teacher with any questions or concerns you have.
♦ encouraging writing often (letters to friends or relatives, short stories, keeping a journal/diary, etc.)
♦ practicing basic math skills a few times a week.
♦ getting your child to school each day and on time.
♦ attending meetings and contacting the teacher ahead of time if there is a problem.
Working together, we can make this a very positive and productive year for your child.
