Hello! My name is Alycia Lund and I am a teacher in the DCD program. This is my fourth year teaching at Edison and I am happy to be here. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota in Scandinavian Studies and then my Masters of Education a few years later. After earning my masters degree I began teaching at Patrick Henry High School where I taught in the Lifeskills program for two and a half years.
I am available via email and by phone. I check both regularly and will return your message as soon as I can.
I look forward to working with you and your child. Please don't hesitate to contact me. Ms. Alycia
Courses 2011-2012 School Year:
The focus of the DCD program is for students to work on a variety of skills in a variety of formats based on their needs and skills. Programming is based largely on IEP goals and objectives and learning tasks are chosen to meet their individual needs.
1.) Functional Skills: Each day there is a focus for the day: including 1.) Number sense/time/math/colors, 2.) Letters/spelling/reading/writing 3.) Personal information- name, address, phone number, lunch number 4.) Functional job skills, 5.) Recreation and Leisure
2.) Functional Math: This is a math class which uses the Touchmath strategy to teach addition and subtraction skills as well as money skills. We also practice calendar skills, time telling skills and number sense.
3.) Recycling class: This is an in-school job-site. The class gives students the opportunty to improve their job skills within the building before trying a job-site out in the community. We do school-wide shredding as well as newspaper recycling and computer recycling. Students have the opportunity to try each of these jobs as their interests and skills dictate. The proceeds from each of these jobs helps to support the DCD program in a variety of ways including paying for community outings, cooking materials, and various program needs.
4.) Functional job skills: This class is an opportunity for students to work on job and math skills in an interconnected format. We work on 1:1 correspondence, job boxes, colors, sorting and matching.
