(August 2015) WANT TO INSPIRE TOLERANCE AND ACCEPTANCE IN THE CLASSROOM? NJ Special Education teachers, Thaïs Sherell J and Daniel Schmeidler, combine skills to address the ongoing stigma associated with special education students in mainstream classrooms. One Awesome School sets the stage for young readers to read and discuss the importance of tolerance and acceptance for students with physical and mental disabilities. In this children’s book, Vienna is a special girl with special needs. The children at her old school made fun of her because of her disabilities, so Vienna’s parents move her to a new school in New Jersey. The book explores emotions that special education students face and how an accepting environment can make a difference. The book is available on Amazon.com.
