My name is Dorothy D. Bailen and I am one of the Student Services Teachers at Middlefork School.  I am responsible for providing additional academic support by team teaching with the classroom teachers and/or by having various students receive small group instruction in a separate setting.  We are off to a great start and I am enjoying working with my students.  I am confident everyone will make great strides!
I also teach Character Education in second grade and third grade. 
Current themes for Character Education are:
  • Building a sense of community in the classrooms
  • Fostering friendship skills
  • Practicing good manners throughout the school
More information is located on the Character Education web pages.
I am looking forward to a great year!

Thank you!
Mrs. Bailen
