What Our Staff Says
“Working at UMFS/Charterhouse School has empowered me to serve students in innovative ways that are not possible in public schools. I find great joy and satisfaction in building relationships with our students and team members as we reach for new heights in our daily lives.”
“We make a difference through collaborative relationships with children, families, and teachers. We play varying roles to support our students’ academic challenges and also teach life and social skills. We do this by forming relationships to achieve even the small successes, for a much brighter future.”
“Working here at Charterhouse School over the last 17 years, I have had the opportunity to be a part of the direct impact our school has on students with a variety of special needs. Charterhouse School is truly an unwavering champion for children and families.”
“What I enjoy most about my work here has been getting to watch the students I care about grow each and every day. They have made me laugh and cry, and every day they make me proud. These students work hard, and that makes coming into work and working hard for them that much more rewarding.”
“I love working here. We create an environment that encourages students to reach academic and social goals, despite disabilities. All youth deserve to know that they can be successful no matter what challenges they have faced in the past. The staff create a nurturing community.”
What does a Specialist do?
- A specialist is responsible for behavior management in the classroom to make the environment conducive to learning for all students
- A specialist is with the students the most of all staff—from the beginning of the day to the end
- A specialist collects data to see what behavior patterns are disruptive and develops plans to see how they can be changed or improved
- A specialist is the liaison between kids/parents/cottage staff (in Richmond)
- There is one specialist per classroom, but there’s a policy of “1 school 1 roof,” meaning that specialists work together as a team to address the needs of ALL classrooms.
