COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Long-time Special Education teacher Kristina Adams is commended for going above and beyond for every one of her students and for keeping up with them after they graduate.
A mother, whose son suffers with severe anxiety, says he would hardly interact with his peers throughout high school. She gets emotional talking about how his teacher was able to bring him out of his shell and even got him to go to after prom activities. Other staff members were stunned by the change.
We talked with the Colonial Heights High School teacher, who told us patience and kindness go a long way towards making kids feel comfortable. She says her students inspire and amaze her every day. Ms. Adams reveals having a sibling with autism inspired her to become a Special Ed. teacher.
