Special ed teacher anticpates tackling delayed dreams

After 42 years of teaching, including 33 year at Cedar Falls High School, special education teacher Pat Trampel is moving on to new things, though she said she will miss “having great students and great colleagues to work along.

“I’m most definitely going to miss working with great co-workers, working with my students and making impacts on their lives.”

Special education teacher Dan Hensing has been working along Trampel for 17 years and said, “She will be dearly missed, and her point of view on things and her lovely personality will be missed.”

“I hope Mrs. Trampel enjoys every single second of her retirement,” Hensing said.

Trampel plans on spending more time with family and upcoming grandchildren. “I will most enjoy a more relaxed schedule with new bedtime and morning routines as well as vacations,” Trampel said.

She said she wants to devote more time to volunteer work, politics, working out, attending movies, Iowa State games and yard work. “My secret goal is to create a fashion and/or cooking blog, but my ultimate goals is to write a book about my experiences as a special education teacher,” Trampel said.

With all Trampel hopes to do after she retires, she said she’s most looking forward to kicking up her feet and pushing buttons on the remote control to catch up with all the shows she’s missed over the years.
