Cynthia Swiech, a life skills support teacher at East Norriton Middle School in the Norristown Area School District, is this week’s #TeacherTuesday. We’ve been told she is “truly a great special ed teacher,” with incredible patience while working with 11 wonderful students from fifth through eighth-grade this past school year.
“I knew I wanted to be a teacher in eighth grade when I started babysitting for a little boy with autism; I knew it was my calling. Throughout high school, I became more excited about working with individuals with intellectual disabilities,” said Cynthia. “My kids (students) are my life and what makes me smile every day. I love my job and look forward to teaching every day!”
We think Cynthia’s students are incredibly lucky to have such a great teacher to interact with on a daily basis.
