Mrs. Laura Cortez

Welcome to Forest High School,

I am entering my 6th year of teaching at Forest High School.  I work in a self-contained classroom designed for students with Autism.  I am one of three teachers that work as team servicing the same group of students.  My goal is to provide your students with access to learning academic skills, self-advocacy skills, social skills, and vocational skills. I strongly promote skills that will guide your student to make good decisions and to become as independent as possible.  I teach Community Based Vocational Training classes and Self Determination classes.  

   I have three grown children and four grandchildren.  My favorite things are to spend time with my family, dancing, hiking, and reading.   

  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
