Ms. Marjean Kochen

Every day is a great day to be a SME Sparkler!  I am Ms. Kochen, and I am the Coordinator of Campus Compliance here at Sugar Mill.  This is my 16th year in education and my 8th year at SME.  Throughout my career I have taught Pre-K, PPCD (ECSE 3-5), Kindergarten, In-Class Support (Resource), 2nd grade, and 4th grade (all subjects).  I have also served as the English Learner Specialist here at SME.  I hold a bachelors degree from Morningside University and I am currently enrolled in the Masters of Special Education with Educational Diagnostician Certification program at Lamar University.  

My role is to assist parents through the IEP/ARD process (special education), manage the 504 program (general education), as well as coordinate all state testing (TELPAS and STAAR).  Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns.  I am happy to help!
