Degrees and Certifications:
I am currently in my 25th year of teaching and 22 of those years have been with SEDOL. I graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1993, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education and Northeastern Illinois University in 2001, with a Master of Arts in Special Education emphasizing in Social Emotional/Behavioral Disorders.
Mr. Paul Heinrich and I co teach and are assisted by a great paraprofessional, Laura Rodgers. The Heinrich/McThenia classrooms are fortunate to have two highly qualified social workers, Amy Lazzaretti and Donna Solorzano, that work closely with our classrooms to evaluate the best educational and behavioral interventions to service the needs of your student. Please don’t hesitate to contact our team with any questions or concerns.
