Mrs. Jonna Rege


I am so excited to be starting my 4th year here at Dunham! Two years ago we changed our Special Education service model from a Resource program to a Learning Center model. This means we can provide students with as much or as little support as they need, and has helped us keep our students with significant special needs here on campus. 
I have worked hard this summer to gather materials and plan to integrate the Common Core Standards into our Specialized Academic Instruction. In the Learning Center, students get instruction at their level, get help with classroom projects and presentations, and get organizational structure to help them meet the high expectations we have here at Dunham.

Personally, I spend my free time cooking or reading. My husband and I love to travel around the area on the weekends, visiting scenic and historical sites and good restaurants. My daughter will be 19 this year, and she is off learning valuable life lessons while working full time and managing her very busy social life. Left at home, I have 3 cats and a miniature dachshund named Henson.

Wish list:

We don't have running water, so water bottles and baby wipes (to clean dirty hands) help keep the children in class as much as possible.
  • Cleaning supplies used frequently:
  • Clorox wipes
  • Clorox Green Spray
  • Paper towels
  • White board cleaner
  • We provide materials for the students, but extras are always welcome:
  • Regular pocket folders for homework
  • Ticonderoga pencils
  • thin dry erase markers for student white board use

The biggest need in the Learning Center on an ongoing basis is BOOKS! Students can read up to 7 books a week, so we constantly need fresh material. The best way parents can help us is by placing Scholastic books orders through the Learning Center. I earn points for your purchases, which I can then spend on books for the classroom. You can also order inexpensive books and donate them to the class library. Thanks so much for your support!
