Yes I Can
Yes I Can

When I was in high school, my teacher June told me that because I had Down syndrome, I coudn't get my driver's lisence. I told my mother and my mother said that June wasn't on the same page as us and that June couldn't teach me anymore. That was how I came back to my local high school. Well, that was 17 years ago. Last week, I drove a car. I wish June could see me now.

As a special education teacher of three amazing students with Down syndrome, I love hearing the 'I Can's!!'. ........ You can!
