Prom King with Down syndrome goes to college.....

I just have to share this link from an article on CNN Health.

Prom King with Down syndrome goes to college..........

I think one of the best lines in the article was this....

"She credits the teachers who were "out-of-the-box thinkers" for helping her son in school."

This is what I believe is so very important for all of our children [especially the ones with an extra chromosome] to have teachers who believe in their fullest potential and help the learn and achieve success, in the classroom and out.

Emma Sage currently has an amazing team.....she is in a co-teaching classroom with a regular education teacher and a special education teacher. Both teachers are amazing human beings, who have been blessed to have the gift for teaching. My hopes are that, as she goes through the grades in school, she will have teachers like Mrs. Pupa and Ms. Weiss who are "out-of-the-box thinkers" and will provide her with the tools to succeed....to reach higher.....to never give up.....and to continue through life with a love of learning.
