Jen Swope, M.S. Director

Our team consists of one California credentialed special educator for each group of eight students, a compliment of paraprofessionals necessary to educate our students at a ratio of four students for each direct service staff member, a fully licensed Speech/Language therapist, a Registered Occupational Therapist, and a school counselor.

We are energetic and positive; we love our work and our students; and we function as a true team, with a common mission to have our students learn as rapidly and as enjoyably as possible. Everyone at Urban Skills Center is eager to be the best educator possible.
