Journaling: Tytiyonna was a healthy, beautiful baby girl. She loved to chat, run and play. Then tragically she was struck by Mitochondrial Disease. By the time she was 5 she could no longer walk or talk but she could smile. She won the heart of everyone with that smile. She taught me so much: unconditional love, an endurance beyond reason, and a strong attitude of service. She remained my star student for 7 years, culminating in attending my Teacher of the Year ceremony. This was our last photo together. She spent her last day on this earth doing what she loved best, going to school. I will never forget the student who taught me everything.
This challenge was by far the most difficult. I mean how can a layout really convey the love and gifts of this precious child? It is truly why the journaling is so important. As a special education teacher, I teach students with the most profound disabilities. I love the privilege and honor of teaching my special, special students.
