I am your child’s special education teacher and I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Amber Heichlinger and I have been a special education teacher for FCUSD for nine years. This is my first year at Vista and I am thrilled to be part of this amazing team. I am married and have two sons. Spenser is a senior and Alex is a sophomore at Vista. They are both extremely active and keep me busy.
I hold a multiple subject credential, a moderate to severe teacher specialist credential, and an authorization to teach science. In addition I have a master’s of science in education. Education for ALL children is my passion. I began teaching in general education and was offered a unique opportunity to teach a pre-kinder class with students who have autism. At the same time my niece was born with Down syndrome. It truly seemed like I was meant to be teaching students with individual needs. I LOVE my job and I am an advocate in and out of the classroom. I believe that inclusion for all students is vital for optimal growth.
I strive for collaboration with all of my families. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email. Please let me know if you have any concerns, questions, or comments that need to be addressed with more than a quick correspondence and we can set up a meeting.
