M-A’s Independent Living Skills class is composed of students with a variety of physical, mental and emotional issues. Some students remain in the class the entire day while others attend it for only a few periods. We sat down with the class’s teacher, Susan Price, and asked her about her experience working with Special Education students.

Elizabeth McColloch

My name is Elizabeth McColloch and this is my third year writing for the newspaper. Last year, I enjoyed writing features and news stories because they gave me a chance to develop new relationships. While writing my pieces, I sought to share stories with our readers in a compelling way. Outside of school, I like to play sports, spend time with my friends, and attend the youth group at my church. I also love to tutor and mentor children. I am passionate about M-A and look forward to being a voice for the student body, as well as a source of community and international news.
