Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Donella Daggett-Buchanan
This is my second year at Mountain Avenue and third year in the district. I am thrilled to join such a great staff! This will be in my fifth year as a Special Education teacher. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this school year.
I am passionate about helping students with a diverse range of disabilities attain higher levels of school success. I often start by building on existing strengths in order to promote efficacy in daily academic routines. I particularly enjoy working with children and I find myself drawn to the array of personalities and challenges of this diverse student community. I also value the opportunity to collaborate with parents and teachers as we “bridge the gap” between home and school life.
Making data-driven decisions surrounding instruction, utilizing multi-sensory teaching methods to support individual learning needs, and accommodating for the linguistic and cultural differences of students helps them thrive.
