MONROE, La. (KNOE) – Teachers and students are getting back into the swing of things for the new school year and the special education department is no exception.
Denise Smith has been teaching special education since 1996. Now at Wossman High School, she and her colleagues are making sure their students and classrooms are safe.
“Monroe City has made sure of that. That all the teachers have been in service on what we need to do, all the new technology and how we’re going to instruct the students,” Smith said.
Smith has eight students in her classroom along with two paraprofessionals.
Students’ seats are spread out six feet apart and teachers will be wearing protective gowns when interacting with students. In addition, they will be cleaning surfaces after each class session and practicing frequent hand washing.
