Kindermusik Teacher with Down Syndrome

The latest inspiring news I have seen today is about a teacher in Columbia, South Carolina. Her name is Bryann Burgerss. She is 22 years old and has Down syndrome. If she were in our area, I want Matthew and Elizabeth to be in her Kindermusik class!

Excerpts from the article:
Something that many would see as a difficulty, she turned into an inspiration.

Bryann brings something invaluable to her students.

"I always tried hard, and I always did my best. No matter what happens, I just keep on going and dust myself off."

Bryann is proof that with hard work, and a positive attitude, you can do anything.

Read the full article and watch the short video and be inspired.

Thank you so much for sharing. I am so stressful right now because things have been a little bit harder during the transitioning process due to my son being on the hospital for so many days, so he was unable to attend to the evaluations. Looking at the video gave me comfort and I know now everything will be ok. Thanks a lot, you made my day with this post.
