Jesse Rubio began using Rethink in August of 2014. His role as a paraprofessional covers a broad area of responsibilities, but for him, the purpose of his job each day is to ensure every student at Fresno USD with learns and grows, and has the best educational experience possible. He and other members of the autism support team are certified as Rethink trainers and now use the program on a daily basis throughout their school district supporting a variety of students across all grade levels to ensure their vision becomes a reality.
For Jesse and his team, the steps to get there were clear; set a common goal and expectations, and use Rethink to collaborate across all channels. Jesse makes daily classroom visits, trains teachers to better use Rethink, supports teachers in data collection, and provides overall suggestions and ideas to everyone he works with; truly a jack of all trades!
“The quality of instruction for our students has risen and teachers are growing because of Rethink. We are stronger than ever!”
