I would love to run into a couple of my students years from now. I have always wondered what their thought processes were. Did I really help them? Did I really make a difference in their lives? Were my techniques helpful? Well, on the PBS website, I found the story of a young man, Marco, who recently graduated from college and now teaches high school. He struggles greatly with his learning disability, but still came out on top. There are four parts to the series:
- A Struggle for Success
- Succeeding Against the Odds
- Looking Back: Lessons Learned
- What Parents Can Do
I liked Part 1- A Struggle for Success- written in his own words. I thought it was a particularly insightful to understand what’s going on in the mind of someone with a learning disability.
It’s a nice read!
