Interview With Adam Lanza's Teacher
Jennifer Huettner was Adam Lanza's teacher for the 9th and 10th and 11th grades. He left without graduating to take college classes. He got his GED from the college.
She says he was home-schooled for the 7th and 8th grades. In the 9th grade, he returned to school and was in a portable classroom by himself. He had Asperger's.
“He didn’t want to be around people,” Jennifer explains. “Our goal was to get him back in the building.”
Adam’s mother Nancy would drop him off, then sit in the next room while Jennifer worked with him.“He was very OCD. He’d clean the desk with Purell,” Jennifer remembers.
He displayed no signs of violence. He never had a tantrum. He was not bullied. In the 10th grade he was in the main building. [More...]
Adam did not graduate from Newtown High School.
After 3 years Adam left Newtown, to take classes at Western Connecticut State University. Jennifer says he earned his GED there.
She socialized sometimes with Nancy Lanza.
“She dragged me to Red Sox games — even though I’m a Yankee fan,” Jennifer says. “She always got great seats.” They went to New York together too.
Huettner also taught Ryan Lanza, who she says "wouldn't harm a fly." She says Nancy Lanza never mentioned guns to her.
