Moderate Needs Services

Welcome! 
The moderate needs team assists the student in developing skills and learning behaviors which enable him/her to benefit from the general education program, even when the challenges presented by a disability in the learning content area or language processing area makes learning in the conventional sense, difficult. Delivery of service is through collaboration (team teaching), consultation, differentiated instruction, materials modification and pull-out and push-in instruction. 
Mark Johnson
K-3rd Grade

My name is Mark Johnson. I earned a B.A. from CSU in English, a Special Education Teaching Certificate from DU, and an M.A. in School Leadership and Administration from UC-Denver. I have been teaching special education since 1998. I have worked in schools in Douglas County, Jefferson County, Adams County 50, Aurora, and Eagle County. In 2006, I came to Sand Creek Elementary School where I found my home as a Moderate Needs Teacher. I have worked with the primary grades for the majority of my time here, but have spent time teaching students in all grade levels at some point. Sand Creek is the best school I have worked for, and a big reason is the community for which we serve. I am lucky to work with the students, families, and staff at Sand Creek Elementary School.
Carrie Koftan


My name is Carrie Koftan. I am a special education teacher with a passion to help students succeed and blossom! I love discovering students' learning styles and customizing an individualized education for them. I am a firm believer in differentiation, and that one size does not fit all. This year, I am excited to be teaching at the various grade levels. My elementary experience includes teaching students from 1st to 6th grade in various classroom settings, ranging from a self-contained class, a public online school, to a pull-out/push-in model where students are in the general education setting for the majority of the day. I am in my thirteenth year of teaching, hold a teaching credential for grades K-12, and a Master's of Science in Education. I look forward to working with you and your child!
