@HonoraryNerd:  Wow, thanks for sharing! Your mom sounds like an AMAZING woman. Seriously, not only an incredible teacher and role model for those students, but just a truly kind person in general. You are so lucky to have her, and so are those kids!

Two of my aunts work with students with disabilities, and I’ve volunteered extensively in a summer school for kids with disabilities. It can be so hard! I remember a little boy we had who had cerebral palsy and severe brain damage because of shaken baby syndrome. He would never walk or talk. 🙁

On a light note, yay for teachers! Of my mom, dad, and their 7 siblings, 5 of them are teachers! Every single one of them with a degree has a degree in education. I am working toward becoming a professor myself.

I’m a special educator too.  Yes, it is a stressful but very rewarding and fulfilling job.  For the most part, it seems like my students have wonderful parents.  I normally don’t have any parents show up at conference night, but I did have 2 come this time.  That’s new for me, and it’s a step in the right direction.  I do have one students who was molested when she was in the 1st grade.  I have worked with students with mental impairments (what we call it in WV), learning disabilities, other health impairments, autism (on many parts of the spectrum), and even William’s Syndrome.  It’s a very fascinating field, but I do agree that it can be exhausting.
