Ms. Julia Christiansen

Welcome to our physical and virtual classroom! My name is Julia Christiansen. In my classroom, I am supported in the classroom by 4 wonderful, paraprofessionals Ms. DeAnn, Ms. Annette, Ms. Cyndi, and Ms. Beth! In our high school room, we strive to promote independence and communication!

We love to support each child's personal interests and engage with the students daily in various vocational and academic activities! In our room, both virtually and physically we will be practicing communicating using computers, pictures, eye-gaze, and speech-generating devices. For vocational tasks, we will also be exploring jobs in our community, practicing job tasks, and practicing our skills to become more independent for employment using switches, put-in tasks, and so much more! Academically, we use the Unique Curriculum to meet the needs of our individual students. We will also be exploring current events weekly through News2You, CNN10, TeenKidsNews, Each week, we will go on a Virtual Field Trip to apply the skills that we have learned throughout the week. 

Thank you for joining our community!:)
