• Instruction at the Reconnection Center is individualized based on students’ needs. Students work with teachers to meet academic goals and learning targets so that they are ready to enter a high school program of their choice. Teachers use project based learning, healing-centered engagement and culturally responsive teaching to engage with students. Four teachers support Reconnection Center students:

    • Amy Acquino (bio), Language Arts
    • Susan Hay (bio), Math
    • Joanna Vausberg (bio), Art
    • Kendra Lloyd-Knox McDonald (bio), Health and Careers

    Francine (Chrissina) Ivosevic (link to bio) is the Learning Center teacher at the Reconnections Center. She helps students with Individualized Education Elans (IEPs) meet their academic goals.
