Interview With Audrey;
Eyewitness To The Inception Of Special Education
S.L.D. Teacher From 1948-1985
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview my husband Luke’s grandmother, Audrey Dalien.
Audrey started her teaching career at a one room school house located deep in the farm lands of Minnesota. Gaining her certificate in under a year, she conducted her first class in 1948.
After a couple years of teaching, she took a little over a decade off to raise her children. Audrey returned to teaching at a time when Special Education was gaining momentum across the country and several years later, became one of the first SLD teachers in the nation.
My goal is to help people gain insight into how teaching was in this country, and what we as a society can learn by simply looking in the rear view mirror.
The overall interview was lengthy, but extremely powerful! Audrey has literally seen it all! Working at a one room school house with coal for heat, being given a janitor closet for her first Special Education room, and great insight into the education system of years past.
I will be posting clips of the interview as they become available. Check back often for updates;
