Special Education Teacher

Hello, my name is David Sanders and I am the Upper School Special Education teacher for the New Roots Charter School as well as the instructor for Videography II. One of the traits which I would consider defining for myself would be a vast interest to learn new things and a unique sense of humor. The path of life brought me to Ithaca 3 years ago where I decided to make a go at finding a new home in this wonderful little city nestled in the finger lakes. My favorite thing to teach is split between helping students in my resource rooms find careers of interests for their lives beyond high school as well as the quirky, creative fun that happens through the videography class. My hope is that after working with me, students have a strong desire to leave their mark on the world for the better and have better coping skills for the more trying times that may come in their lives.
