Mrs. Jobin's Page

Hello! This is the webpage of Patricia Jobin, M. Ed. I am a special education teacher/case manager.  I can be reached at (603) 432-6937 extension 6516 or at [email protected]. I have worked for the Londonderry School District for over 20 years. I was a regular education teacher for 6 years and I have been a special education teacher/case manager for the rest of those years. 

 For the 2019-2020 school year I am working with all grade levels at Matthew Thornton. I work assisting both regular education students and special education students with regulating their behaviors and emotions in order to move on with the school day. This resource is called the Student Support Center (SSC). The Student Support Center mission is to provide a proactive,  preventative approach for students to access behavioral supports as well as coping skills. The SSC has been created for students who may be compromising instruction for themselves or others. It is designed to provide support for students who are having difficulty managing their behavior. The goal is to a) provide a place for students to de-escalate, b) reflect on their choices and behaviors, and c) process and use problem solving strategies in order to meet expected behaviors in the future. The goal is to have students return to the classroom as quickly as possible. When working with students in the SSC, the student's particular behavior will be connected to the following school-wide expectations:
                                                                P- Positive Attitude
                                                               A- Act Responsibly
                                                              W- Work and Play Safely
                                                               S- Show Respect

Developing routines is important to helping children succeed in adjusting to a new school year or any big life change. Make children a part of developing and implementing routines so each feels in control and has some say in these changes. It is also necessary to have children become more responsible in taking ownership in picking out and packing snacks and lunches. Students should also be packing backpacks with necessary items and belongings. This will increase their independence skills.
