Ms. Silvia and I went to an Orientation and we were informed about a special needs student who was an introvert, who would probably not be participating. When we first introduced ourselves and why we were there, he threw his jacket over his head and stayed with it covering his face for a while and his head down on his desk. However, when I started to talk about sports and its relation to ballroom dancing, he removed the jacket from his head and raised his hands and said, "I do fencing." Once we acknowledged him, his face lit up! This was a pivotal moment He began to sit tall and confident and was excited!!! This was an amazing experience and his teacher was so touched that he was excited about our program now!!!
