M. Hartnett

2021-2022 Moderate SDC 

Hello parents/guardians and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Walters Middle School! My name is Matt Hartnett and I will be your child’s SDC teacher in the Moderate program for this school year.

For returning students and families, I look forward working with you and your child again throughout the new school year. For our new students and families, I’d like to welcome you to Walters and I am looking forward to building a relationship with you and your child for the coming school year and beyond.


We will be holiding Back To School Night as well as all IEP's for child via Zoom during this school year. Here is the link to access the class Zoom room for Back To School Night as well as all IEP meetings:



Since our students are not on a diploma track and will receive a Certificate of Completion upon aging out at 22 years old in the SPED Transition Program, we do not require homework to be completed since they do not receive letter grades and instead is based on IEP goals and objectives. If you would like extra work for your child to work on at home, contact me and we can provide you with worksheets for extra practice.



SLP and APE instructors will be conducting classes accordingly if your child is receiving these services. Our Speech & Language Pathologist for this school year is Mrs. Swetha Yetipathi and our APE instructor is Mr. Nicholas Faulds.
