Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Highland Park Senior! I am Melissa Matuzak! I have had the opportunity to teach special education at Highland Park Senior since 2003.
The courses I teach are Skills for College and Career, US Government, Reading and Transition Skills. My courses are designed to both cover the subject area as well as address the individual academic and transition needs outlined in my student's Individual Education Plans.
In addition to my teaching license in special education, I also hold a teaching license in art education. I am currently earning my masters degree in special education and an additional license in autism spectrum disorder.
Besides teaching, I really enjoy being artsy, gardening and spending time with my family and two dogs!
