You have reached the website of Nancy Backus, special education teacher at Cloverdale High School.  This is my eighth year of teaching and my fifth year working in the Cloverdale Unified School District. I am delighted to be a part of the CHS team and love the students and subjects I am fortunate enough to teach.  On this site, you will find class overviews, contact information, and a monthly class calendar. You will notice on our class schedule that a variety of skills are addressed to meet the needs of the students who are assigned to my class for the period listed.  Most of my students, also, attend one or more general education classes.

Please feel free to contact me at any time in whatever method is most desired.  I love and appreciate open communication with the parents of my students.  Communication books, emails, phone calls and text messages have all been used.  Text messages may be the quickest way to contact me, however.  I am also open to suggestions for things parents would like to see posted on this website.
