“I have known Teri Pettit for over 19 years. She reached out to help me with both of my children during a very difficult time. When Ms. Pettit was working with my son he could not read, write or do cursive handwriting. But he learned and did well. My daughter also has learning issues that were helped by Ms. Pettit’s care and understanding. Ms. Pettit took so much time and patience with both of my children. I believe my daughter is successful today because of Ms. Pettit. She was able to help both children. I am forever grateful for her caring nature and willingness to work with children who don’t fit normal expectations.”



“ I trained under the kind, helpful guidance of Teri Pettit. Teri was always there with answers to my many compliance questions. She was there with great advice when it came to difficult challenges in my school. But her greatest gift of all was teaching me how I could best serve children. If there were issues in our school that became too big to handle alone, we could breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Teri was always, always behind us. She knows the law inside and out. Teri will work incredibly hard to make things right for you. I will be forever grateful for her kind guidance, which helped mold me into a hopeful, helpful and compliant TC.”
