Prove Them Wrong

I talk about this day so often. He was TWO YEARS OLD! He is legally blind. They said he would struggle to read, write, run….hell-they said he’d struggle to do tons of things. Steve and I nodded our heads and ignored their opinions about our sons’ supposed limitations. We promised each other our boys would decide what they could and could not do. He was an active, independant reader at age three. He insisted we take his training wheels off at age four. He played T-ball at age five. So for all of you out there being told no or can’t or probably not—-just remember-only you know what you’re truly capable of. So screw anyone who tries to hold you back!!!! #provethemwrong #albinismisbeautiful #jojoforpresident #proudmom #neversaynever #betruetoyou

I am an educator who thrives on helping others. I spent close to 15 years teaching and then as an administrator in the New York City Public School System. During that time I completed my first Masters Degree in Teaching Reading and and additional degree in administration. I currently tutor students in all subjects and grades. In addition, after completing the Parent Advocacy Class with The Federation of Children with Special Needs several years ago, I am a parent advocate. I plan to dedicate my time to helping other families of children with special needs.
