I recently moved to the area. I have been a special education teacher for 15 years for all ages and ability levels. I have extensive knowledge of academic standards and requirements for progressing to grade levels and keeping skills current. I have taught summer school for many years for many ages of students. I have began subbing in the area and love it. My husband and I have two teenage children. I welcome the opportunity to teach a child skills needed for a life of purpose, service and leadership at their ability level. I can provide references. I have worked extensively with Aspergers and autism, behavior disorders, ADHD, learning disabled, etc. Please contact me with any questions.

Regards,
Heather
