You made Joe laugh every day and I think he made you two laugh just as much. You accepted him into you classroom with open arms. We know it wasn't always easy but you did it, You always encouraged Joe and gave him confidence. He made a lot of friends in your classes that he carried into middle school and soon high school. Thank you. - Frank & Julie R.
Thank you Jackie for your patience and dedication. You always respond quickly to our concerns. We had a lot of anxiety when our son transitioned to middle school. You made middle school such a positive experience for our son. You are awesome. -Julie R.
Professional. Smart and Forward Thinking. Understanding and Compassionate. Available. Responsive. Willing and Able to See the Big Picture. Open to Trying New Ideas. Accepting. Excellent Promoter of Self Advocacy. Our daughter found comfort in Jackie so many times in 7th grade. That comfort empowered her because Faith felt like she was heard and Jackie gave her the confidence she needed to carry on with new thinking. For years UD families said "Just wait until you get Mrs. Bald" and now we are part of the elite who have come to know her amazing gift for working with spectrum kids. -Ann & Drew M.
For all guidance, hard work and assistance at the high school, as well as her prompt and clear communication--she is awesome! -Liz L
You included our son into your classroom - twice! We learned a lot about what good teaching looks like during his 4th grade year. And we are so thankful you invited him back as a HS senior to assist you and your students as part of his community study. He really enjoyed his time in your classroom and we thank you for everything you have done for him. -Karen & Larry S.
Thank you Mr. Bickhart for your tireless nurturing of all the MGES children and your passionate support of children with special educational needs.. -Frank R.
