TOWAMENCIN- After 16 years in the North Penn School District, Mrs. Dale Wittmer is retiring from her position as a special education teacher. While she is sad to be saying goodbye to the students and faculty of North Penn, she is happy to be going home to spend time with her grandchildren.

Before her years at North Penn, Wittmer worked in the benefits area at Merck and Company, and was home with her four children. She came to the district in 2002, and started at the high school in 2007.

Wittmer’s title is Special Education Case Manager and Itinerant Support Teacher. Her job mainly focuses on being a case manager for 45 students with individual education plans. Her students are regular education, 5.0, 6.0, and AP classes, but their documented disability has qualified for special education services such as extended time, or testing in a separate location.

“My major responsibilities are communicating with parents, checking up on students, and providing support for students who come to the support room. I am in the support room for 6 periods a day; students are scheduled there for help with assignments, finishing tests, studying, or organization,” explained Wittmer.

Everyday at North Penn is a new adventure for Wittmer, and she is grateful to have gotten to know so many students and families throughout her years here.

“My favorite part of my job is working with the students and parents. I see kids who have been struggling and make progress and pull themselves up, that’s why I’m here, I love to see success stories,” said Wittmer

In her retirement, Wittmer plans to stay in Towamencin Township. She will be watching her new grandchildren a few times a week, and will hopefully pick up some new hobbies.

“This is a great place to work. All of the years that I have been here have been fulfilled and happy. It is a great faculty and administration to work with. I have mixed feelings about leaving, and I wouldn’t be if it weren’t for my children having children. It has been a wonderful experience,” Wittmer reflected.
