It’s Teacher Appreciation Day, there are many I could mention. First, Sarah Elizabeth, I love that she gets so much pleasure helping to inspire a love of reading in all the students at her school. Frederick Smock will always be one of my favorites, he reached through the attitude of a 17 year old me to get my attention and hold me accountable. Finally, Maryanne Jennings, my first news writing instructor, she insisted on clarity, and thought me that the red marks on copy don’t mean I’m a bad person, it means the copy is bad and needs work

In light of recent events on the exclusion of an autistic child from participating in a school trip I feel the need to write this. There are boys and girls that nobody invites to birthdays for example. There are special kids who want to belong to a team but don’t get selected because it is more important to win than include these children. Children with special needs are not rare or strange, they only want what everyone else wants: to be accepted !! Can I ask a question? Is there anyone willing to copy and paste this post to their wall without sharing it, like I did for a friend? Thank you.
