Four years ago I began teaching in the Aldine school district as a substitute teacher. I subbed mostly in elementary schools but one day decided to sub in a special education class. I loved my day and loved getting to know the children. After coming to fill in at Garcia-Leza, I was asked to stay. And for the last two years I have been a para in special education. The only hard part of my job is saying good-by at the end of each year to my students.
