NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Rebecca DePreta says watching her students grow and lear is “the best thing ever” and that’s one of the reasons her co-workers nominated her for Teacher of the Week.
As a Special Education teacher at Eaton Elementary School she says one of her goals is to make sure her kids learn, but have fun in the process.
She wants parents, students and everyone else to treat special needs kids with kindness and to keep an open mind about them. She teaches all kids to treat her students “just how they’d like to be treated themselves.”
In the end, Ms. DePreta wants her students to smile when they think of her and to leave her being a little more understanding.
