My name is Jelon Avery. I teach special day class for TK and Kindergarten. I have a Master’s in Special Education. I have been teaching for over 15 years overall in the California Public School System and teaching for over 10 years in the Franklin McKinley School District. I have always loved working with children, first as an assistant and now as a special education teacher. As I have worked with children with special needs my whole career, it has been challenging but also very rewarding to me. It has been especially rewarding to see the positive changes and the growth that I have been able to see in the students that I have had the privilege to teach over the years. My hobbies include hiking, camping, fishing, reading, and exercising.
