Miss Kayla Dolder-Belknap

Hi! My name is Miss Belknap.  I am a mother of a beautiful 9 year old daughter and we moved to Houston from Upstate New York, about 4 years ago! Wow, how time flies! I was born and raised in New York but fell inlove with Texas when I was 17. I am a graduate of SUNY Cortland, with a Dual Teaching Certification in Elementary Education since 2011.  I continued my education in 2012, later graduating with a Master’s Degree in Special Education with an Autism Specialization from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA in 2014.   I have now been teaching for 10 years in New York State and Texas in different capacities.  I have experience teaching 5th-7th grade Co-Teach as well as 5th grade General Education Social Studies/ELA/Reading.  I have always had a passion in working with children needing behavioral support.  With that being said...


I am the CLaSS Teacher here at Sartartia Middle School!  CLaSS is a program, focusing on assisting children with Communication, Language and Social Skills.   My team is made up of myself and three  paraprofessionals.  We work together creating a warm and nurturing environment for children to feel safe and comfortable in school in order to limit problem behaviors and increase social awareness as well as academic success. 


Looking forward to being a New Jag this year! Go JAGS!
