Ms. Jane MacNeela
Hello Lead Mine Families!
I'm Jane Mac Neela, the Physical Therapist for your school [and 20 other schools!]. As a School PT, I work with students who require help with mobility, fully accessing their school environment, and being safe at school and during school activities such as field trips. I work with students directly to improve their strength, endurance, balance, gross motor & mobility skills, and sometimes to learn how to use adaptive equipment such as walkers and wheelchairs. I do a lot more behind the scenes too. I joined the Lead Mine team in 2015-16 and truly enjoy working with my awesome colleagues and the amazing children and their families!
This is my 40th year as a Physical Therapist, all but 1 year spent in pediatrics. I've been a School PT in the WCPSS for 10 years and have worked in over 40 schools--and Lead Mine ES is in my Top 5 favorite schools, all because of the great people here. I love working with the students--we work really hard but also have a lot of fun 'cause it's essential to help each child enjoy our time together and want to do it again. I hope you'll stop and watch us working in the hallway or out front and meet some of these great students who will enrich your life as they do mine. It takes a village, and it's gonna be another great year here at Lead Mine ES! Go Leopards!
