Samantha Harper, Spectrum Academy STARS

“Samantha Harper is AMAZING!! She is a special needs teacher at Spectrum Academy and not only loves her students but SAVES their lives!! Yesterday my son was choking on a piece of candy and she and an aide gave him the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the candy. It worked! I’m so thankful for their certification and training on not only life-saving procedures but also how well she works with my son and the other kids in her class. Every child is on a different level and she knows what they need and how to help them. Special needs teachers put up with a lot and they also love the kids unconditionally. She takes the time to really understand each child’s needs and what they need to be successful. We love her and her aides! They are literally life savers!!”
