Mrs. Shaver works with students whose last names begin with L-Z. Mrs. Shaver is available Monday- Friday from 7:00 am- 2:30 pm during regular scheduled school days.

There is a problem outside of the classroom that they can't handle on their own.
They are having behavior or adjustment problems in the classroom.
