The Light of My World

Location

Do you ever see kids with disabilities

 

Looking so happy and content

 

Seemingly living life to the fullest

 

As we sit and watch from a far enough distance

 

We feel sad for them

 

In the end, it should be the other way around

 

A special education teacher helps the light shine through their faces

 

The children are the warming sunlight of spring in the classroom

 

They are different from other people

 

In the way that they see the world around them

 

Kids with disabilities don’t feel sorry for themselves

 

They live life the way it’s meant to be lived

 

As a special education teacher, life is changed for the better

 

The smiles and the laughter that they bring

 

Will always be the warming sunlight of spring

As a future Special Education teacher, it breaks my heart to see how people react whenever a child with a disability comes into sight. They are children that are trying to have an average childhood. People seemingly are scared of these children too. I take great pride in all of the Special Education students whom I am encountered and will encounter later on. They make me smile, laugh, and love life. I believe my future job is a job that is the most fulfilling and life changing of them all.
