Native American Services Program Coordinator
Nya:weh Sge:no' ~ I am thankful you are well!
My name is Michala Redeye, I am the TOSA (Teacher On Special Assignment) Native American Program Coordinator Pre-k - 12. I oversee the Native Services here at the Salamanca City Central School District. I previously taught Seneca language & culture at Seneca Elementary 2005-2012. I am very excited to be in this new position (2017) and working with staff, students and families.
I was born and raised in Salamanca and am an SHS Alumni. I am Seneca and of the Wolf Clan. I live in Salamanca with my family. My children are Darcey (SHS graduate), Carson (SHS Senior) Paisley (2nd Grade) and Tanner (3 yrs old). We have a dog, Bella and two cats, Maggie & Millie. I have many brothers & sisters and nieces & nephews. Spending time with my family is my favorite thing to do! We like to travel, camp, and have fun!
Salamanca is a unique place with much diversity. It is the only U.S. city on an Indian Reservation and is home to the Seneca Nation ~ Allegany Territory. SCCSD has a high Native American population with many tribes represented here from the Hodinosyonih (Iroquois) of New York State and Canada to the Kenaitze tribe in Alaska. In this position, I oversee the programs and services we offer our Native American students. I work with SCCSD staff and the Seneca Nation along with other outside agencies to ensure that all programs and services are meeting our students needs.
I want to make the home/school/SNI relationship stronger and we can do that together. We at SCCSD have a cohesive relationship with our staff, the SNI staff and other agencies that help serve our students. Together we can provide the tools our students need to succeed in school and in life. There are many ways to be involved, and you can contact me for more information or with any questions.
My office is in the High School office in room 4. You can reach me at 716-945-2404 Ext 6004 (office) 716-307-5924 (cell) or at firstname.lastname@example.org
