This class was tough.
This class is working with the special needs kids in our school. Taking this course is so rewarding, you will never leave the room without having a smile on your face. You learn so much about not only the special needs of the kids but you also learn a ton of life skills. You learn how to be patient, how to work with others, and you also learn how to be grateful for what you have. You change the kids lives by giving them a friend and always being there but I learned way more from them then I could have ever taught them.
The best part of taking this course would be seeing the joy on every single one of the kids faces when you came to help. The kids loved having you in the room and would chat your ear off most of the time. They loved the fact that they got to see you and tell you all about their weekend. They also were just always positive and could tell if you weren't having a good day. These kids have harder lives then most people and still continue to boast with joy daily despite there disabilities.

Advice for students:
Be prepared emotionally because some days are going to be hard. Sometimes the kids go on a new medicine and they will be a completely different kid from the day before. You could have a medical emergency in the class room and thing will be scary. No one can train you for things like this or emotionally prepare you, you can just expect that these things are going to happen and it will not be easy but it will be worth it knowing you made a difference to these kids. It takes experience in the class room and with the kids to start with emotional preparation knowing situations may reoccur.
