VIDBE-Q Volume 66, Issue 2 17 music performances his students provide twice per school year. Tim has managed to teach students who are mostly nonverbal to sing solos, students with autism to perform their best in front of a large audience, and he is known to even dance with students who may "choose" to not stay in their place on stage. Tim brings out the best in each of his students. That is the most amazing evidence of a teacher's work. Over the past two years, Tim has been assigned to teach the students in the elementary and middle school programs. He plans individualized instruction for each student. The elementary students have multiple disabilities and require a variety of related services, while the middle school students focus more on core subjects and academics. He juggles this masterfully, collaborates with a large number of staff involved, serves as case managers for his students, and supervises his paraprofessionals and utilizes their skills to work effectively. His student focus and dedication is beyond measure. Sally Schreiner writes, "Tim puts his whole heart and soul into everything he does each and every day for his students. Our students, families and staff are better for having Tim Lockwood as a teacher at the Nebraska Center for the Education of Children Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired. As a school administrator, I could not be more proud of his work in this field."
