Quote Bubble Icon

IEA is a non public state-approved special education facility that is unlike any other in the state. We have the ability to make special education students feel confident and strong, while helping them gain the skills they have missed along the way. Our students thrive in our small, structured, loving environment.

    Why I Teach

    I am inspired by my students' desires to learn and better themselves. I go to work every day to be a positive part of their lives and watch them develop and grow.
