Welcome to Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks for the 2012-2013 school year. I am Shaye Bureau, a 7th grade inclusion teacher here at Horizon Academy. This year I will be working in Ms. Cook's math classes (1,2,3,4,& 6) and Mrs. Bensonhaver's 5th period Language Arts class. I support and teach the students within their general education classes. I also teach one on one in a small setting, test in a small setting, conduct IEP meetings and make sure that the students are receiving and using the appropriate accommodations placed on their IEPs.
Parents, please access www.bigideasmath.com to help your child in math this year. This book and website has an excellent tutorial that will guide both you and your child through the math skills. Please take advantage of this excellent tool!
Please feel free to contact me here at Horizon Academy either through the webmail or via phone 671-6290 ext 57329. Since I am working in various classes during the day I am only at my desk between 2:20-3:00. I will return e-mails and phone calls at my earliest convenience.
On a personal level, I was born and raised in Connecticut. My BA is from Eastern Connecticut State University and I also have a Master's Degree. In 2004 I became a National Board Certified Teacher. This is my 25th year of teaching. I taught for 3 years at North Marion Middle, 12 years at Fort Clarke Middle School in Gainesville and then Sunrise Elementary and Horizon Academy.
