Our faculty at DFW was challenged to read just 20 children's chapter books this summer. We were asked to give some input about each story we read. You can find this information here Book Whisperer Challenge
You can also keep up with us on Facebook. Just search #dfw20 in the Facebook search!
What this does for us as professionals and for our students is that we share our own love of reading with our students. We can focus on helping them become life long readers because we are able to recommend books that they would be interested in and it helps our school develop a database of different genres and interests to help our students find good books to read.
Teacher of the Year for DFW is Mrs. Callie Turman Luker
Mrs. Luker has been an EC teacher at DFW/WOS for 5 years. She received her Bachelor degree in K-12 Special Education from Mississippi College. She started her teaching profession in 2007 as an Adult Education Teacher at Central Carolina Community College. She received the 2012-2013 Teacher of Excellence in the Exceptional Children's Program. She has an excellent rapport with her student's families and maintains those relationships even when she isn’t teaching them anymore. Luker is a proud member of the Edenton-Chowan Special Olympics and Autism teams. She is an advocate for all students and loves to teach. Her love for special needs children is evident in her work and it shows every day!
