My name is Irena Pachkevitch. I used to work several years as a behavior support specialist. Those years of experience working with special people have taught me the value of patience and encouragement in the classroom.
Now I am a Para-educator here at the Highlands Community Charter School and I am very proud to be the part of the group of professionals who do what they do for the love of the job and the students. I am proud to be in a position where at times I am a support for those who need it.
I have students, and teachers that are happy to see me and love that I am here at Highlands. I am very proud to work with my wonderful colleagues who inspire me every day to be a better specialist.
