Hello, my name is Aimee Dwyer. I was born and raised in Terre Haute. I am a former Woodrow Wilson Warrior and Terre Haute North Patriot! I went to Purdue University for my undergraduate degree and Ball State University for my master’s degree. At both institutions, I majored in special education. I furthered my education while I lived in Louisiana, adding elementary education to my license. In addition, I am highly qualified in secondary English/Language Arts.
I have been in education for almost 30 years now! In this time, I have taught everything from first grade reading to senior government and economics. I have taught math, science, and social studies, but mostly English and reading. I also taught as an online adjunct instructor at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College for 8 years. Finally, I have written professionally in the summers for a national consulting firm.
Prior to coming to Woodrow Wilson, I taught in many other areas. I spent five years in Covington, Indiana, and nine years in Morgan City, Louisiana. I spent two years in the middle school program at McLean Alternative Education Center, here in Terre Haute. I have been at Woodrow Wilson Middle School since 2009.
Currently, I serve as the IEP writer with a caseload well over 100 students. I am the teacher of record for students at all three grade levels. Finally, I am the team leader for special education.
I am the mother of an adult son. I love my pets: a Golden Retriever, a German Shepherd, and a cat. In addition to the commotion of our busy lives, I enjoy down time, including reading, photography, and travel.
