LET Special ed teachers touch lives
As our daughter completes her years of schooling, overseen through the Special Education Department in the Rochester school district, we offer words of gratitude.
Most importantly, our thanks extend to the adults who interpret, guide and teach these programs. In particular, we recognize TAP (Transition to Adult Program), a post-secondary offering. A unique program where training and coaching are provided for life skills and job preparation, enabling her to better contribute to the community.
True, law mandates services to all children with disabilities. However, no law can mandate the kind, true and open-hearted people who invent and teach the many aspects of these programs. These adults have nurtured and tenderly touched our daughter's life and the lives of all youths in the Special Education Program in Rochester.
The professionals integrated in her educational experience give of noble effort. They assist, encourage and instinctively understand each person, inclusive of their disability. We are glad and grateful.
