٦ 4 | 1 Ce NYHAGEN “A special education teacher gets a different perspective of education,” said Gwen Nyhagen, special ed teacher. She was involved in the mentally disabled educable program. ‘‘| became interested in special education in high school when | worked with a Red Cross volunteer program,'' she explained. This was Nyhagen’s first year of teaching special ed at Ames High, and she found the school quite fascinating. Nyhagen taught her students the basic skills they needed when they got out in the world. She said that she wanted the kids to realize that they are a contributing factor to the community. " | get very angry sometimes at regular students who can't accept the special education students. They just can't see that they are just another human being with problems.”’ She continued that it is sometimes frustrating to not see immediate accomplishment in the kids, but that it's rewarding when they do achieve. There was a drawback in teaching special ed though, she said. She felt that she became too involved in her students and didn't get around to meet other people. ‘‘Someday I'd like to go back to regular teaching.” Outside school Nyhagen enjoys reading and spectator sports. 162 Faculty 4 7 | Upper Left: Gwen Nyhagen, special education.

DA ` ۰ 1 ۲ ا ‘= A ۳ $ 7 D KUHNLE " High school is not very long; life is a lot longer.” Hon Kuhnle, head of the art department at Ames High, feels very strongly that art courses should become a required part of a high school education. He feels that art classes give people valuable creative experience that they can use later on in life. While Kuhnle was in the service, he decided that he would like to become an art teacher. He taught art in Denison, lowa; Storm Lake, lowa and Wheaton, lllinois, before coming here. Kuhnle thinks that working with high school students is more exciting than working with either junior high or college students. ‘‘High school students really get involved with their work. ۱۲ they run into a problem on a project, it's interesting to see what they do about it.” Kuhnle has seen many of his students go on to a successful career in art. He related a funny story about his previous teaching jobs. ‘‘When | left Denison and went to Wheaton, the man that replaced me was a student of mine when he was in elementary school. When | went to Storm Lake, the woman that had replaced the man was a student of mine all through high school.” Kuhnle said he enjoyed teaching art because of the people and their reactions to things. He has been at Ames High for six years. Faculty 161
