Teresa Fajt: Special Education


My name is Mrs. Teresa Fajt, and I am a Special Education Teacher at Curtisville Primary Center.  I have taught at Deer Lakes since 1999.  Prior to receiving my full-time job at Deer Lakes, I was a substitute for the district.  
I enjoy working with children and believe they need to start their education with a strong foundation. It is important for each child to enjoy school, learn as much as they can, and feel good about their accomplishments. Every child can learn some just learn in different ways.  
I am married and have 2 children, a girl and a boy.  We reside in the North Hills School District.  We enjoy traveling, reading, and playing/watching sports.    


Each of my students will have their own homework journal/folder to meet their educational needs. They will bring their homework journal/folder home Monday through Thursday.  Once your child has completed the homework, please sign or initial the journal.
Each child in second grade will have a spelling list as well as a Dolch list to practice.
