Inspire your Students with Challenges

Many of her students are very well aware of the disabilities and challenges that they face. Unfortunately, these challenges can get in the way of the child finding their strength. I believe that sharing examples of people that had significant challenges, yet with time to do amazing things, is a great way to get students with challenges thinking about their strengths and how they can build on them.
Harrison Craig is a great example of overcoming challenges. From the time he learned to speak he had a significant stutter. Up until today this disability still impacts his life. As a child he was frequently teased and bullied. Despite these challenges he has pursued his talent in singing, and recently appeared on The Voice in Australia. I will be sharing this video my class, and discussed the importance of overcoming challenges.
