Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jessica Durand, and I have been appointed as Heuvelton’s Middle School Special Education teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. Last year was my first year with the district, and was in the same position, hired as a long-term substitute. For both years I have taught Resource Room. I obtained my Undergraduate Degree from Buffalo State in 2008 in K-12 Art Education, which is also my Initial Teaching Certification area. My Graduate Degree is in Inclusive and Special Education from SUNY Potsdam, and I am currently pursuing my Professional Certificate in Secondary Special Education. This year, I also assist as one of the Junior Class Advisors. I live in Alexandria Bay with my husband, (we just got married mid-October). In my free time, I travel back home to Buffalo to be with my big, fat Italian family!
