Mrs. Heidi Gomez
Welcome to 7th grade! My name is Heidi Gomez and I will be your student’s special education case manager this school year! This is my 17th year as a special education teacher! I am fairly new to Sabin just like your students and I have loved getting to know them so far! I have a Bachelor’s Degree as a Special Education Generalist in K-12 and a Master's degree in Autism that helps me in daily interactions with your students.
A little bit about me and my teaching style: I try to bring excitement and a cheerful outlook to learning in each of my classrooms and I am committed to continuous learning for all students. I strive to help them find innovative, robust, and personalized strengths within their classroom community to help them achieve academic excellence and find a calling beyond the classroom.
My educational mission statement is:
"I am committed to identifying and meeting the diverse needs of each student through individualized educational programming to encourage each student’s success and well-being as they prepare for the future. By doing this I will encourage students to become life-long learners and to explore learning with excitement and interest."
I look forward to meeting all of you as we move forward together.
As far as classroom expectations and communications, all of my classes follow the school’s positive behavior and discipline expectations as well as the classroom contracts that I will be building with each class as part of our Capturing Kids Hearts program here at Sabin!
I will be calling and emailing you to schedule your student’s IEP meetings at some point in the school year. Please make sure that your current contact information is in the new PARENT POWER SCHOOL https://www.d11.org/PSLanding! This is also where you will see your student’s grades, IEP documents, and attendance.
IF you EVER have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact me:
Class phone # 719-328-7250
Texting # 719-377-3808.
These contacts can be shared with your students as well so that they can contact me!
