Transition Teacher

About Me
Heather Hedmark
My name is Heather Hedmark. I am the transition teacher at Philip J Rock Center and School, working with students ages 18-22 years old. I have been teaching since 2001 and have been at PRC since 2018. Previously, I have taught in Illinois, Washington state, and Arizona. In 2018, I received my master's degree from UIC in special education. While I have worked with many different grade levels and ability groups, my love is working with older students with multiple disabilities. If you are a parent reading, I look forward to working with you and your child as they journey through the transition between school-age education and adult living. Do not hesitate to reach out to me for transition guidance, assistance, questions, or just to introduce yourself. If you would like to set up an individual meeting to go over any areas of transition, please send me an email at email Heather Hedmark. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner, my dog, and my cat. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, and fishing.
