Pied Pieper of Joyful Music


Charleston, S.C.

Check out the energy and joy in these kids faces. The students from the West Ashley High School Special Education Choir entertained us at lunch yesterday. I don't even know the teacher's name but he was amazing, giving each student a chance to shine - sing or dance and then led them on a merry parade. It was such a happy event.

  2. Every special ed teacher I have known has been incredible. They bring students to me at the hospital for job training. I've always been amazed.
