ARGOS â€” Edie Hastings, recently retired JESSE teacher at Argos Elementary, always knew she wanted to teach, but it wasnâ€™t until college that she decided on special education.
Hastings was working a summer job with the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) in Chicago when she witnessed volunteers working with handicapped children. Hastings knew that was something she wanted to do, and switched her major that fall from elementary education to special education. Hastings retired this spring from teaching after 25 years of teaching through JESSE, at Argos Elementary and six other locations.
