Instructional Teams

As Springer is a non-graded school, the Primary department includes students ages 6-8; the Intermediate Departments serve students ages 8-11; and the Middle School departments work with students ages 11-14. Each department team works closely together to meet the needs of the children in their department. Each team is supported by a language therapist, occupational therapist, and psychologist. At the primary and intermediate levels, students receive most of their instruction in their homeroom while students at the middle school level have different teachers for each subject. 

To contact a team member, send an email to {{first initial}}{{last name}}@springer-ld.org.
