    Career and Transition

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. 

    Hello and welcome to RVHS!   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 2019-2020 school year, I  will provide indivudualized transition services for all students with an IEP and regularly support  Career Pathways and Community Independence Instruction classes.   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).  I will work with our Job Coach (Ms. Faith Higgins) 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.  This is my second year with LCPS but have been teaching special education for 30 years.  I have been providing transition services to students and their families for twenty-two of my thirty years.  I have been married for almost as long as i have been teaching and my husband and I have two adult age daughters and two rescued Bichons. 

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