Small Talk With Teri

Wendi Whittles




By Teri Norbye

Meet Wendi Whittles, who lives in Pleasant Hill with Craig, her husband of 18 years, and their two sons, Colton and Connor. Wendy works as a special education assistant providing autism intervention services for young children in the Mt. Diablo School District. She loves it and would recommend the job to anyone. Her favorite way to relax is to hang out with her friends with a glass of wine.

How did you become a special education assistant? I had to take a proficiency exam. There’s a math component, and I don’t do math. So I went online to IXL Math, did 2,000 math practice problems, and I passed! 

What’s your morning routine like? It’s crazy! I’m an early-riser and get up at 5:30am. My husband is already out the door by then. I have half an hour to myself to have my coffee and get my quiet time in the house. Then I get the kids going, take my shower, get ready for work, and make school lunches for my kids. 

Biggest pet peeve? Making school lunches. Normally, on Sundays, I’ll call Zachary’s, get a medium pizza, and my kids will have pizza and fruit for lunch throughout the week.
