NOVEMBER 2022 TEACHER OF THE MONTH
My name is Olivia Caraballo and this is my third year teaching Autistic Support grades 3-5. I graduated from Wilkes in 2020. When I first started at Wilkes, I was majoring in English with a focus in secondary education. During my sophomore year, I had my first special education class which I had to complete hours for in a local special education classroom. It took one day in that classroom for me to switch my major to include special education. The class and its students truly changed the trajectory of my career and I haven’t looked back since. Outside of teaching Autistic Support, I also work at the Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes University, as their Outreach Education Assistant, where I plan tours and lessons based around their current exhibitions. I am also the art teacher for the Shine program, where I service seven local schools and provide cultural art lessons to k-8 students. I love being able to combine my passions for inclusivity, art, and culture to local students who may not have access otherwise. Art is the universal language that is accessible to everyone no matter their ability or disability. I love sharing what I care most about with all of my students and creating a more accepting place for all students. – Olivia Caraballo, Wyoming Valley West School District
