    Riverside Rams! Ann Speidel
    Career and Transition

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. 

    Hello and welcome to RHS!   I am the Transition Teacher at Riverside.  The Transition Teacher is a Learning Specialist who supports students as they plan for life beyond high school.   

    For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching Career Pathways in addition to providing indivudualized transition services.   I link students to adult service agencies and pre/post-secondary employment and training opportunities(ie.situational and career assessments, vocational/technical education, apprenticeships, internships,  and college supports ).  I am the point of contact for referrals to the Department of Rehabilitative Services (DARS), the Community Services Board (CSB), the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act program (WIOA), the Communities and Schools Together program (CAST), Project Search, and the Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center (WWRC).  The Transition Teacher works with our Job Coach (Ms. Mary Kate Cook) to secure jobs and support students participatig in work experience as part of their high school curriculum.  

    I have a B.A. in Family and Child Development from VA Tech and a Masters in Transitional Special Educations from George Washington University.  While this is my first year with LCPS, I worked in special education in Fairfax County for 29 years and for 22 of those years I was providing transition services to students and their families.   

    On a personal note, I am married with two daughters and two rescued bichons.  

    Please call or email anytime for support related to transition services at 703-554-8900 ext:88397 or ann.speidel@lcps.org.   I love forming effective, collaborative relationships iwth colleagues, parents and students!
