2017 TEACHER OF THE YEAR

Funke Alashe-King
Palo Alto Middle
Special Education
7 Years of Experience


My favorite thing about teaching is creating positive school experiences for my students.  Regardless of their disabilities, the sky is the limit!  Their potential towards life-long goals surpasses their many challenges.  Watching my students persevere and gain knowledge and skills to be as independent as possible, reassures me that I make the right decision to become a special education teacher.
