Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
That quote guides Traci Vicente, a special education teacher for the last 28 years, in her passion for helping kids with special needs learn, grow, and thrive.
“I love the challenge and excitement of teaching,” she said.
It’s a love she currently brings to her classroom at Clark Middle School in Frisco, Texas, though she has also taught in Florida and New York during her nearly three-decade career.
As one of 10 grand-prize winners in the WGU Loves Teachers sweepstakes, Traci hopes to help her students see math come to life by purchasing some books that combine literature and math. Stories that integrate math heavily into their plots and characters “bring to life the meaning of mathematics in a fun and engaging way,” she said.
Through the WGU Loves Teachers sweepstakes, WGU and Scholastic are awarding 10 $300 grand prizes and 100 $25 first prizes to thank teachers for their hard work and help them build up their classroom libraries and supplies.
Congratulations, Traci! Stay tuned to The Night Owl Blog for stories of more winners in the future.
