Tracy Waddles-Williams teaches Special Education for grades 4, 5, and 6. She hails from Compton, California, and is currently attending California State University at Domiguez Hills for her teaching credentials.
Ms. Waddles-Williams worked at Pizza Hut for 17 years, and left to pursue teaching which she regards as “her true calling.” While attending college and taking classes for her teaching credentials, she has worked as a subtitute teacher for two years, mostly at a special education center in San Pedro. There, she was considered the most preferred substitute teacher as the staff saw how much she cared for her students.
Ms. Waddles-Williams’ teaching goals are to provide a caring, exciting, hands-on teaching environment that “makes my students want to become active participants in their lessons.”
Outside of teaching, she is active in her local church and serves on its board of directors. Her hobbies include travelling, and she takes at least one trip per year. Her recent travels include Jamaica, and Williamsburg, Virginia, where she learned about the history of colonial America.
