I never pictured myself working with students with special needs but around last year’s St. Pat’s day marked the beginning of my current teaching world. I tried teaching in the past but I really never saw myself working with special needs students. I told myself I would not like it. However, just like Sam I Am prescribes in good old Green Eggs and Ham, all I had to do was try, try it and I may. I do like special ed. I do! Really though, taking this job and liking this job has taught me more about myself and it has helped me see that there are a lot of things I am afraid to try for no good reason. Shame on me! I need to try more green eggs and ham!
And, LUCKY for us, I currently have some ham soaking in a green bath just waiting to be joined by green eggs for our Sam I Am snack on this St. Patty’s Day!
