Special Education Teacher Wade Dinkins Retires
For 25 years, special education teacher Wade Dinkins brought smiles into his classroom. This year, he retires from teaching after teaching at the school for four years.
Mr. Dinkins began his teaching career in 1996.
“It was a wonderful experience, and I couldn’t have picked a better place to end my career,” he said.
Being a special education teacher is no easy task. Many teachers and staff couldn’t do what Mr. Dinkins did, which demonstrates the level of patience and passion. The love this man had for his job and students was unmatched.
Over the course of his career, Dinkins taught a diverse group of students. His goal for every class was to “create an environment where kids felt safe, happy, and engaged in their learning process.”
After he retires, Dinkins plans on continuing to work with students. He will be tutoring students that are learning how to read and acquire social skills.
He will be remembered as a great teacher at Venice High School who always supported his students and brought enjoyment into the class with his big personality.
