Mrs. Dwyer: “Students Make My Day”

“I like BYMS. I have come to know some awesome supportive teachers and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them and learn from them and I also  think Mr. Valburg is an awesome principal too,” stated Eva Dwyer, a new SDC teacher at BYMS.

She first taught at Rossier Middle School in Orange and taught all subjects as a Mild Moderate Special Education teacher. She decided to come to BYMS because she was able to teach and work in her community.

Mrs. Dwyer earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science from Chapman University. Also she earned her Education Specialist Teaching Credential and Masters of Science in Special Education degree from National University.

SDC stands for the special day class. “A special day class is an intensive educational program designed for children with special needs. A child may be eligible for this program if he or she suffers from severe mental or emotional disorders and learning disabilities. These problems must be severe enough so as to cause a child difficulty in performing in a regular school setting or in alternative less-intensive special education programs, or to be at risk for harming himself and/or other classmates,” read wiseGeek clear answers for common questions.

When not teaching, Mrs. Dwyer enjoys spending time with family, taking long walks, and shopping.

“I like the students most about teaching that is why I got into teaching.  The students make my day and I learn things from them as well,” stated Mrs. Dwyer.
