Mrs. Jessica Ortiz-Eichert
My name is Jessica Ortiz-Eichert. The students call me Mrs. Eichert. I have been teaching since 2001. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching middle school Learning Support classes, high school Autistic Support classes, and am currently teaching high school Life Skills classes.
I love teaching the Life Skills Program at Kutztown High School. Life skills include a wide range of knowledge and skill interactions believed to be essential for adult independent living. The goal of this program is to prepare students to make a successful transition to adult life. Students will be encouraged to establish an independent lifestyle and either enter post-secondary training or secure a job.
Therefore, the life skills curriculum approach will blend academic, daily living, personal/social, and occupational skills into integrated lessons designed to help the students learn to function independently in society. To make this program work I ask for an open line of communication and partnership between the parents and myself. This will be key to making this program successful.
I look forward to an exciting and successful school year! If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.
