Thanks to Wendy for, once again, sharing content with Beyond Adversity; the actors, choreographers, and filmmakers for proving challenges can be overcome, Globe Theater for allowing the actors to perform there, and Nike for the use of its slogan.

Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development.

    It is satisfying to see disabled individuals blow away belittling stigmas. I’ve seen special education play a big role in developing these opportunities that nurture self esteem, grow talent, and make life better. Increased funding “would help do it.”

      All education is underfunded, but special education is particularly underfunded. In general, teachers are under appreciated, underpaid, and over worked. This trend cannot continue. The status quo is shameful and harmful to students, teachers, families, employers and communities.
