I spent the 2000-2001 school year as an associate in a behavioral disorder classroom. It was a great experience and I learned a lot about these special kids. I also learned a lot from these special kids. There is one specific time I will always remember and it made me realize, even more, how special these kids are.
The school was having an assembly for the third and fourth grade children. It was a puppet type presentation on children with disabilities. I accompanied one of the student's from the BD classroom, a third grade boy I'll call Mark, to the assembly. There were five different puppets and each one had a different disability. For example one was in a wheelchair and another one was blind. Each puppet was involved in a skit and in between each skit the students could ask questions. The fourth puppet was kind of wild and loud. He didn't have any friends in school because of his behavior. No one took the time to try to make friends with him. This puppet was a student in a BD classroom. The minute the presenter said this my heart sank. I thought it would make Mark feel terrible and embarrassed since he was the only one at the assembly that was a BD student. When the skit ended Mark raised his hand. The presenter called on Mark and he said. " I know how he feels because I'm one of those kids in the BD classroom. I think other kids just need to know that they can come up and talk to us because we do want to make friends." I looked around the room and every teacher had tears in their eyes. I think all of us learned something from Mark that day.
