Ranell Burnett

Hello and welcome to high school! I am a Resource Tutorial Specialist (RSP) here at Hayward High School (HHS).  I am a credentialed teacher, who will serve as the case manager for your son/daughter here at HHS and look forward to working with them during the 2014/2015 school year.  RSP is a large part of your son/daughter’s life here at HHS.  Through RSP they will receive additional help inside/outside of the classroom to ensure they understand their assignments and have an alternate place for testing.  In addition, I will be working together with the general education teachers to ensure progress is being made toward your son/daughter’s IEP goals, as well as using different strategies to help them retain current curriculum being taught in their classrooms. 

I expect all my students to work quite hard and to apply themselves to their full capability.  In return, I will provide the best learning environment I can and offer them lots of positive support to help them achieve their goals through hard work.  This will be accomplished with a lot of humor and patience. 

A little about me, well, I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a B.A. in Education and Child Development.  I then went on to earn my Multiple Subject and Special Education Teaching Credentials from Saint Mary’s College in the city of Moraga, California. Most resently, I completed a Masters in the Art of Teaching and a Masters in Special Education at St. Mary’s College.  In addition, I am a proud parent of three persistent children ages 24, 18, and 17 years.  Daily, they keep me grounded with an understanding of how teenagers and young adults develop and move through their own worlds.

 Again, I look forward to, take great pleasure in working with your son/daughter here at HHS and look forward to having a fantastic year, full of new discoveries and academic growth!
