Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had by Brad CohenThis book should be required reading for every teacher, not specifically because of the tourette syndrome ties but simply because each and every teacher needs to work with each child regardless of capabilities or disabilities. Brad Cohen was a victim of numerous humiliations and banishments because of tourette syndrome... many of these humiliations at the hands of his own teachers. As the title indicates, he decided early on in his life that he would become a teacher, the teacher he never had. A wonderful true story of self-empowerment. We all would do well to learn from his experiences and learn to accept everyone on their own terms without threat of humiliation or non-acceptance!
