“Our son will eventually transition back to the public school, but for now, Y.A.L.E. is giving him the solid foundation to build on in order to be successful." — Steven and Caroline H.
Teachers and administrators at The Y.A.L.E. School are highly-qualified, career-oriented special educators.
Our staff is trained in the use of evidence-based instructional methods; we consistently review emerging research to be sure our teachers maintain superior strategies and therapies.
We are committed to ensuring that our faculty and staff are properly equipped, educated, and prepared to teach. Staff receives ongoing supervision, intensive training, coaching, and consultation related to their responsibilities.
Staff is observed frequently and given feedback to ensure our programs are consistently and correctly implemented.
The Y.A.L.E. School values personal qualities in our staff that make them better teachers. The Y.A.L.E. School staff are:
Dedicated — Our teachers will “go the distance” for their students.
Lifelong Learners — Our teachers seek to learn as much as possible about their students, their disabilities, and ways to help them learn.
Organized — Our teachers give their classes the physical and academic structure students need.
Intuitive — Our teachers are watchful. They anticipate students’ needs and address their concerns promptly, even when students cannot describe them. This refined sense of intuition can minimize or prevent difficult situations.
Creative — Our teachers know how to think differently. They are alert to new opportunities to explain and demonstrate subject matter, and can interpret student behavior.
Optimistic — Our teachers know that for some students, seemingly simple tasks can be long, arduous struggles. Our teachers offer hope and encouragement in the most difficult situations.
Accepting — Our teachers appreciate their students and value them for who they are. Students respond best to teachers who they feel are attuned to them, who “get them.”
Even-keeled — Our teachers know that students can be unpredictable. Our teachers are self-assured in times of crisis, and instill in our students a sense of confidence and security.
