SPECIAL SERVICES

RMCTC is committed to providing each student with the necessary academic support and critical skill attainment they need to become productive members of a complex and demanding workforce.

We work in partnership with our sponsoring districts, business and industry and port-secondary education institutions to achieve these goals.

Our school offers an array of support services tailored to individual student needs which focus on the unique learning styles and aptitudes of each student through our education programs, counseling services, and school nurse.

Examples of these special services include:

  • A team of instructional support professionals and paraprofessionals who provide assistance to students requiring additional support to satisfy the curriculum requirements.
  • A Learning Resource Center (LRC) at the campus for students to work in small learning groups, testing, and to utilize computer-assisted instruction.
  • Printed materials, bilingual staff, and communication outlets provided in both English and Spanish.

Biography
I was born and raised in Laureldale, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Muhlenberg High School. I currently reside in Sinking Spring, where I live with my husband and  two school-aged boys.

In my position as an Integration Specialist, I enjoy the opportunity to help support my fellow instructors in including math and technology into their programs. The application of those skills can help to better prepare our students for employment upon graduation or continuation of their studies at the post-secondary level.
