Welcome To Our Class!  

My name is Karen Velyk, and you've naviagated to our classroom web page. 

Our school, QUEST Elementary School, is located in the town of Hilton, NY, a small town about 20 minutes west of Rochester, NY. QUEST is a multiage, International Baccalaureate, school of choice.  We are part of the Hilton Central School District and have students in our school from preschool to age 12.

I have proudly taught in Hilton since the fall of 1999, beginning as a Special Education Consultant at QUEST Elementary and the High School Alternative Education program, then transitioning to full days at QUEST as a consultant, inclusion teacher, general education teacher, and a self-contained Intermediate teacher of Exceptional Children.

My classroom of Exceptional Children, ages 8-12, are taught primarily in a small classroom setting to address unique academic, physical, and social needs, with additinal opportunities to participate in general education classrooms. My learners are genuine, kind, and enthusiastic and make each day special.

We are supported by a team of related service providers: Occupational Therapist, Music Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist, Adaptive P.E. teachers, Physical Therapist, School Counselor, Classroom Teaching Assistant, Classroom Aides, and Sign Language Coach.  My students receive instruction in small groups or individually based on diverse abilities and needs.
