Why do you love being a Special Education teacher? I became a Special Education teacher because I like being the voice for kids that can’t speak up for themselves; every kid deserves a advocate for them.
What does receiving this award mean to you? It’s nice to be recognized in front of the faculty you work with and get the award from my co-teacher/friend that I work side-by-side with every day .
What is your favorite thing about your job? My students are my favorite thing and being able to interact with them.
Why did you become an educator? I wanted to make a difference in education and be a leader for the students.
