Special Education

LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICES (LSS): This program combines a staff of professionals that may include general educators, special educators, a speech therapist, a school psychologist, an occupational therapist, a certified occupational therapy assistant and paraprofessional educators to meet the needs of each student who has qualified for an IEP.  Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) are developed for all students who have been identified as having an educational disability which impairs their learning ability and/or performance to a marked degree, within the classroom environment. A continuum of services and adaptations to curriculum, instruction and/or environment are based on student needs and the IEP and are provided to each identified student.

 

Britany Borel

Subjects: Math, Reading, and Study Hall.

Education: B.S. in Criminal Justice and K-6 and Special Education
Credentials from California State University Sacramento. Currently
working on my MEd in reading at Regis University.

Bio: I originally hail from Orange County, California. After graduating
from high school, I attended the California State University
Sacramento where I played softball and received my B.S. in Criminal
Justice. My first job was at Stone Lake Elementary School in Elk
Grove, California. After my first exciting year of teaching, I got
married, and my husband and I packed up all of our belongings and made
the trek out to greener pastures. This is my seventh year teaching and
my first year at EMS. I truly believe that when students, teachers,
and parents work together amazing things can be accomplished.

Outside of school, I love spending time with my wonderful husband,
Clint, and my distinguished dog, Rosco. Together we love to go for
walks, camp, fish, and wheeling. In my solo time, I like to sew,
craft, garden, read, and currently I am learning how to play the
guitar.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason. Email is the best
way to get in contact with me.

Anna Lamers

Subject: Speech Pathologist

Education: B.S. and Master’s Degree in Speech Pathology from the University of Tulsa. 

Bio: I lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma my entire life up until I moved to Colorado in June 2014. In Tulsa, I worked as the Speech Pathologist at a local Middle School for 6 years and then ventured into the private practice realm for 3 years. When I came to Denver to visit lifelong friends in January 2014, I absolutely fell in love with the city and its people. When I started looking for jobs in Colorado, I knew I would only interview for a job where I had the opportunity to work with middle school children again. Luckily, Euclid Middle School recognized this devotion and hired me as the school’s Speech Pathologist. Before moving to Colorado, I have always been an avid runner participating in many 5K’s and half marathons. Now that I am in Colorado, I have developed a passion for hiking, climbing, and camping. I completed two “14ers” this summer, both of which included big sections of Class 3 level hiking- yep, I just jumped right in there! I also enjoy nice long biking trips and could probably play golf every day of my life! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to an exciting year at Euclid!
