Jared Edwards

About Me


My name is Jared Edwards and I teach Special Education, Functional Life Skills.  I have worked as an assistant here at Hillside Middle School for over three years and began my first year of teaching this 2015-2016 school year.  In this class there is a lot of work with not only those who have disabilities, but also with peer tutors who help with achieving goals and are the heart of this program.  

Throughout my college career, I was asked various times why I chose the type of career I did.  As a fan of sports, cheering for the underdogs have always been a big part of my life.  I like to cheer for those who others say, “Have little to no chance of winning.”  That is why I like to work with students who have disabilities because seeing their victory on a daily basis is greater than anything else.  I absolutely enjoy working with those who are part of this class and the excitement of the accomplishments that take place here.
