Rockwell Charter High School’s very own special education teacher, Stephanie Christensen, has made a huge impact on the special needs program.
She works very hard in what she does to accommodate all of her students and their individual needs.
“Challenges do arise, just as they would with regular education students,” Christensen said.
Special Education teaching is something she has always been interested in.
“My brother is special needs, and because of that I knew that I wanted to become a teacher,” Christensen said. “Special needs children and adults are often misunderstood.”
Christensen says that since becoming a teacher, she has learned a lot.
“I have lots of compassion for people who struggle and the desire to help them.”
Rockwell is lucky to have a teacher like Christensen.
