Welcome! I am Mrs. Sereno, and I am a Resource Teacher at Ben Franklin Elementary. I am from West Terre Haute, Indiana and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and Mild Interventions at SMWC. I have taught special education at the VCSC for 10 years.

  • My family

What to Expect in My Classroom

My classroom is a resource room where my cohort, Mrs. Stump, and I differentiate small group reading math lessons for students. These small group lessons target specific skill practice which are geared to target individualized student goals.

Classroom Transformations

I really love providing a learning opportunity that is fun and engaging. My favorite way to provide engaging learning opportunities is through classroom transformations. Throughout the year, our classroom work area will transform into an inspiring theme for an entire week! Students will participate in various skill review activities based on the theme. Listed below are examples of transformations my students have participated in. New Ideas are in the works!!

  • The Bat Cave (Halloween)
  • Mrs. Clause Bakery (Christmas)
  • Candy Shop (Valentines Day)
  • Superbowl Game Day!

What is an Annual Case Review?

An Annual Case Review (ACR) is a conference held by a students Teacher of Record, parent, classroom teacher, and other team members to review the students academic growth. VCSC  conducts ACRs within the students birth month.

If a parent has concerns that need addressed before the ACR month, please make contact to request a conference.

Parent Safeguards 

Parent safeguards are presented to parents once a year at the ACR or first scheduled meeting of the year.
