speakerWhat People Are Saying

It is my job as a teacher to make sure I know how each student learns and cater to them in that way. I also know when to push those students who can go above and beyond the current lesson. This is when different teaching strategies come into play. It is my job, as a teacher, to know what strategies are going to ensure that all of my students are successful. -- Erin Wafford

She goes out of her way to make sure students with special needs are getting the same chances as everyone else. This passion for her students has not only helped students with special circumstances, it has helped all of her students. -- Mentor Teacher

Good planning and instructional delivery are strong and made even stronger by the warm relationship that Erin develops with her students. I was impressed by the caring relationships exhibited between students and Erin even outside the classroom setting.

Erin deserves this award because she has the dedication, persistence, commitment, and passion to serve the needs of students with disabilities and their families. -- Professor of Special Education
