If I could earn a living doing what I love most I would teach students with disabilities. I believe teaching these students to believe in themselves is crucial for our country to grow. In our current school system children with disabilities fall through the cracks and get left behind. Seeking these students out and finding their hidden talents can impact our world because these students often think differently than the majority. They can teach us incredible things, if we could just give them a voice.
To make this dream a reality I would start small by working for the special education department in one district. Once I find resources and tools that empower students with disabilities I would impliment these practices and change our educational standards. It’s important to seek these children out and show them their own possibilities. We need to show students with disabilities how to proudly navigate a world that was not built for them.
