Do You Know About The Student Mustang Mentors Program at MTMS?
Mustang Mentors is an after-school club from Manchester Township Middle School where general education students hang out and play alongside students with autism from Mrs. Corrine‘s class.
The club, advised by Mrs. Corrine Stinemire-Tordik and Mrs. Megan Baumgartne, affords students with an opportunity to stay after school to work on their social skills while having fun with their peers!
"The parents of the students with autism have expressed how much they love for their children to have the opportunity to stay after school and enjoy social interactions with their typical peers", says teacher Corrine Stinemire-Tordik. "The Mustang Mentors and their parents have also conveyed their joy and a sense of pride in being connected to the students with autism as well as a sense of fulfillment. Peers working with the special education population show great character. It is wonderful to have such a great relationship between the special and general education students in the building!"
