Hello Gravely Parents,

I am Ms. Bonnay and I will be your child’s Resource Program Specialist this year.  My background includes eighteen years of teaching experience in special education and general education.  I have a Special Education – LD Credential; a Masters of Arts in Elementary Teaching including certification for the English Learners Language Authorization.  I have taught 1st-6th grade general education and K-6th grade in special education pull-out programs.

My teaching experiences also extend outside the classroom in serving the community in capacities such as teaching after school reading programs; summer school for Special Day Class students from pre-school to fourth grade; and working with the California State University of Monterey Bay staff and Natividad Physician’s Assistant residents in a Minds Matter pilot program that serviced 6th grade students with trauma backgrounds helping equip and prepare for middle school.

I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year and having a wonderful year of learning! 

Best regards,

Lori Bonnay, M.A.Ed./Sp.Ed.
