        I agree with you Lauren, special education in other parts of the world seems bleak and I look forward to learning from Glory ways to advocate for students.

      What an amazing experience to be able to travel and teach in a foreign country! It's sad to hear about their lack of resources but it sounds like Nahem was lucky to have you in his corner!
