WESTON, Conn. The first two days of the new school year for Weston Middle Schools new special education teacher Tom Rogusa was spent getting to know the kids, he said.
Rogusa comes to Weston with special education experiences at Achievement First in Bridgeport, a school in Wallingford and a high school math teaching position in California. He will teach Learning Strategies and other classes, teach a collaborative class with an English teacher and assist students with study skills organization. I'll help students work with a different curriculum and assist other teachers to help students feel supported, he said.
Weston Middle School opened on time after the construction project to install new windows and doors was completed. Environmental tests were also conducted and approved last week to insure the school was free of PCBs.
The delay before the opening didnt impact me a ton, Rogusa said. People were worried but the crew worked really hard nights and days to get school started. There were originally so many snags and a lot had to happen, but its nice to see.
