Mr. Dubnansky

Hello parents and guardians,

 

It is a pleasure teaching students with a variety of special needs in the Life Skills Classroom of Smithfield-Selma High School. While a typical school day finds us working on specific Individual Education Plan goals for each student, I and the assistants in my classroom are focused on enhancing the students' ability to function not only in the school, but in the community as well.  Thus, annually we take field trips to the State Fair, participate in a county wide bowling event highlight of which is the Himalayan ride, participate in Special Olympics, take a trip to Pullen Park, and join the folks at Clayton High School for their Alternative Prom.

This year we have two students who will be going across the stage to receive thier certificate.  I hope it will be first of many to do the same.  I have been fortunate to be teaching for 18 years in Durham, Wake, and now Johnston County where I hope to reach 25 years of teaching and head into retirement just as all of the current students will be aging out of high school. I feel a special bond,not only to my students but to their familes who in my book, are top-notch.
