Ms. Lori Parthimos

Welcome to my page! I am happy you found me.  I have been teaching since 1997.  I have been teaching at Leyden since 2001 in the Special Education Department.  I am currently a Facilitator, a Case Manager, and a Special Education Health teacher.  As crazy as this past year has been, I have never learned more, about technology or about myself,  in such a short amount of time.  As much as I look forward to a day when things are back to "normal", I am excited to learn all of these new things, and continue to look forward to finding exciting ways to connect with and engage students,  even if it is virtually! My hope for all of us is that we stay healthy and learn as much as we can, even if what we learn isn't excactly what we anticipated.  Lastly, I am a good listener and I am very flexible, so please never hesitate to reach out with questions or needs. There is a link above to contact me, and my  voice mail and email are under my picture to the left. Together, I am sure we can find a way to solve almost anything!
