Welcome to our Classroom Website
    My name is John Byers. I have worked in the Special Education field for the past 8 years.  Before becoming a special education teacher I worked as a paraprofessional at Wayzata and Delano schools.  I received my Master's and teaching license in Specific Learning Disabilities and Academic and Behavioral Strategies from the University of St. Thomas.  I began my teaching career at Robbinsdale Public Schools before starting at University Avenue Elementary during the 2015-2016 school year. 
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
