“I can’t imagine doing anything else other than teaching students with special needs,” said Kristin Campbell, a special education teacher for Pre-K through second grade. “I love the gains that they make on a daily basis. They might not be the gains that a typical student might make, but for them they are really big and special. We celebrate those as much as we can whenever we can.
“I love working with my students who all have unique abilities. They all teach me something new every single day. I learn from them. They bring joy to my day every day. We can laugh and we can have fun. Just watching them grow, succeed and become more independent every day — all of those things we work toward for them.”
