Faculty & Staff

Our faculty consists of degreed and certified teachers with more than 80 years combined experience working with children with Learning Differences.  These highly experienced teachers provide direction and motivation for students.  Along with our Curriculum Coordinator, each teacher determines the materials and techniques best-suited to meet the needs of each student. Low teacher-student ratios ensure optimal conditions for specialized instruction.
