My son Joseph is 22 now. When he started high school he couldn’t take the noise in the hallways or the crowds. He had no friends but he loved gym class. His teacher Mr. Stango took him under his wing, made him his assistant in class and made him feel important. It made me proud to know that he wasn’t being just pushed through the system. To this day he likes to talk about his experience in Mr. Stango’s class.
