Ingham ISD's Special Education Classrooms at Heartwood School
Heartwood School is located on the Ingham ISD campus and is a special needs school for children and adults ages 3 through 26. Heartwood services students with moderate, severe and multiple impairments as well as students with autism spectrum disorders. Substituting at Heartwood can be challenging but also very rewarding. Some, but not all, of our classrooms require help in feeding, lifting, changing and toileting students. We are seeking both substitute teachers and paraprofessionals to work at Heartwood School. If you are interested in subbing at Heartwood School and would like more information before you sign up, please feel free to attend one of our optional trainings. Information regarding the training dates will be published by EduStaff for these quarterly meetings.
