Jennifer Ireland plays a huge role in supporting staff in our building, particularly new hires to the district. When a new teacher or para joins the Skyridge staff, she jumps right in to bring them up to speed. Whether it is imparting her vast knowledge related to the magnitude of the tests we use to evaluate, or teaching a para the ins and outs of accommodations, she pushes everyone around her to excel.
Special education is Jennifer’s game and she makes the plays. Her ability to identify students and their needs is always on target. When a teacher has a question on a better way to enhance instruction so their special education students get the most from a class, Jennifer is there with constructive ideas and tools to help all students. Her knowledge and specialized training are an asset to the district. Not enough credit is given to our hard-working SPED staff, but Jennifer Ireland increases the knowledge of our students and staff: she is a real Playmaker!
