My name is Anna Maxfield and I am so excited to begin my 7th year teaching special education at Locke! I have been working in special education for 13 years, first as a paraprofessional then as a special education teacher. My goal is to encourage students to become independent thinkers and flexible learners. I include students in decision making about our classroom and our learning because they are the most important members of our learning community! I strive to provide instruction that is fun, rigorous and that meets the individual needs of the students. Although this year will begin remotely I am looking forward to learning together. It is important that we work together and support one another as we begin something that is new and different for all of us! Please reach out to me if you need anything!
