Ms. Karen Blackburn
Welcome to my class at Fremont Jr. High! I attended college in Minnesota, and attained my masters degree at the University of Phoenix. I previously taught the learning disabilities class at Lincoln Elementary in the Mesa school district for 12 years. I enjoy teaching the MIID class at Fremont Junior High!
Students are given opportunities to learn skills necessary for transition to high school and beyond in a functional context. They receive instruction in functional academics in math, reading, writing, personal management skills, and daily living /workplace skills. We will discuss thinking maps, following directions, recipes, and other larger themes to enhance and practice more basic skills. Class goals are for all students to do their best and learn the desired curriculum and state standards.
