What an inspiration!

I was watching CNN while ago and they happened to have a story about a camp in Georgia for kids with Tourette Syndrome. The driving force behind the camp was a man named Brad Cohen, who has TS himself. I googled his name and discovered that he is an award-winning elementary teacher who has written a book about his experiences growing up with TS and becoming "the teacher I never had." On his website he has the video of his appearance on Oprah. I was so moved by his story, and especially the video of the kids in his class and school at the end.

May all of our children be lucky enough to have at least one teacher like Mr. Cohen in their lives!
