North Carolina special educator in running for national CEC award

Perry Slade teaches exceptional children at Woodlawn Middle School in Mebane.
Perry Slade, who has taught children with disabilities for more than a quarter of a century, won the N.C. Council for Exceptional Children's 2008 Excellence in Teaching Award and will compete for the national award. "I teach [students with disabilities] the same things everybody else teaches. We just do it at a slower pace," she said. "They just have to learn in a different way or in a different style. It's challenging to find out how they click or what way they need to learn."
