Jennifer Bastian (Stendahl)
I am a Jamestown Alumni and just made the leap back into Special Education at Jefferson Middle School and I love it!
I am a "no news is good news" teacher who focus's on building relationships with students and teaching social and interpersonal skills. We take time to celebrate our accomplishments as a class and individually. I am a huge fan of Brian Mendler's work.
I also attended and graduated from Jamestown Community College, SUNY Fredonia, and Mercyhurst University. I am both pre-k-6th grade elementary education certified and Birth - 9th grade Special education certified.
I spent many years at Salamanca City Schools and earned tenure in both Special Education and Elementary Education. I taught Behavioral Education in a small classroom at a variety of levels, and Autism Support classroom and a classroom for students with developmental disabilities. There isn't much I haven't seen or taught.
