Mrs. Lavinia Chiorean
      Welcome to Room 220! My name is Lavinia Maria Chiorean and I have been teaching special education for 15 years. Before moving to the US, I have been a teacher in my home country Romania, for seven years. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and Sciences of Education (Romania), and a Master Degree in Language, Literacy and Specialized Instruction (DePaul University, Chicago). I also finished all coursework for obtaining my ESL endorsement. I love my job, and I love seeing my students everyday in class. I miss them dearly and I am very proud of their progress! That's why we need to continue the hard work we started in class, via e-learning. We will continue working on improving reading, writing and math skills, as specified in my students' IEPs.

     All instruction will take place via Google Classroom. I will post weekly assignments for all areas: spelling, reading comprehension, fluency and word decoding, writing, math, science and social studies. We will communicate via email, and my office hours are 10-2 pm. Work will be differentiated based on the students' needs and instructional goals. After logging in in the correct classroom, students will find information regarding instructions, explanations, online resources, and the method for returning work for teacher feedback. If you have any questions please email me at (I check my email several times throughout the day). I am here to help and guide you in this new process of learning!
