Welcome to Alta Sierra!
Hello, My name is Teresa M. Zoellin. I am a Resource Specialist with a Masters Degree in Special Education, and I have been teaching in Special Education for twenty years. I have been in the Nevada County area for 38 years. I am very blessed to have worked in PRUSD for the last eight years. Alta Sierra is an amazing school with an incredible staff, and I enjoy coming to work every day! :)
General Classroom Information:
In our ASD Learning Center, we serve students grades TK - 5th with Individualized Education Plans. Our goal is to provide each student with a level of support that best meets his or her individual needs. According to a student's IEP, we integrate students into the general education classroom setting as much as possible, and students also have their homeroom in general education as well. We work collaboratively with parents, general education teachers, and DIS staff--OT, APE, and Speech & Language providers--as indicated in the student's IEP. In our ASD Learning Center, we provide specialized academic services in a structured setting. We currently have OT equipment in our Learning Center to provide students with daily sensory diet activities as indicated by individual student IEP's.
PLEASE NOTE: We service students TK-5th grade, so please see your child's homeroom teacher's website for your child's grade level calendar of events.
