How a Student Can Teach and a Teacher Can Learn
Kristina rolled into my life in 2004. Literally. You see, she has cerebral palsy and gets around in a wheelchair. She came to me as a sixth grader; a passionate, expressive girl whose difficulty verbalizing her thoughts hindered her ability to express herself.
I was her special education teacher. She would eventually become my teacher.
“What do you see yourself doing after high school?” I asked one day as I wheeled her to the elevator. She was then in eighth grade. Kristina wryly replied that she was not going to be a professional soccer player. She wanted to be a part of a publishing company and write.
