"My School of the Future class consists of both special needs and mainstream students in one class together. The mix is pretty new for me, but I've had the special needs class for a while. The special needs class is one of my favorites. I love their energy. I love that they encourage each other. They have a "no man left behind" mentality. They've been a joy to work with from the beginning. Some have physical limitations that we work on, like flexibility and upper body strength. They've come a long way, but we'll keep on working. Coordination is a bit difficult as well, but the more we practice, the better it gets.
