Okay, as you may already know (or not yet), I am a Special Education Teacher. I have handled special needs children since 2011. I used to handle primary level, with high support, but now I'm working with bigger kids in middle and high school level, a high functioning one, for the past 3 years. Is that enough for an opening? Okay, I think that's enough. Now, let's move on.
Our Special Education Department has an annual awesome event called Celebrate Diverse Learner. It is used to be called Autism Awareness in conjunction with World Autism Day every April 2nd. But then when we re-think about it, we don't only have Autism students here in our school. Our students are more varied and diversed. Long discussion short, we decided to change the title with some words that will embrace the diversity among us. So, there we are coming up with Celebrate Diverse Learner. Cool, isn't it? :)
This year Celebrate Diverse Learner (I'm going to call it CDL to make it easier, yes?)…
As much as I love korean drama, there were times when I didn't feel like watching any.
Oh, how come?

Recently, this kdrama lover feels the same feeling again. However, this time, I feel like, my heart tells me to watch, but my brain says enough. So I often go back and forth scrolling all completed kdramas. I'll stop whenever my thumb feel like to. And it's often stop at something with the unchanging theme: ROMANTIC COMEDY. Oh boy, my taste has changed.
I think I know why do I feel like to watch something light, with no plot twist. Maybe because my real life took a lot of my attention. Maybe I was too exhausted wi…
So the events for students were actually done. In the third day, we pretty much had more fun in terms of events. We held a bazaar for our school community. A bazaar for everyone from differently abled people. Approximately 10 stalls stood; Bubble Cafe, Infinita Scarf, Rumah Kampus, Precious One, Palletable, Able Art, TEC HS Business Project, LC Bazaar, Studio Ilustrasi, and Yoga Burrito.
We couldn't be happier knowing the great enthusiasms shown by visitors. They appreciated all the goods sold in the bazaar. No wonder some of the stalls were closing fast, especially food stalls. It was heartwarming to see our students mingled with the kids from the bazaar during recess. They played basketball together. The kids looked extremely happy to spend time together without even thinking about race, religion, and disability.
At the end, after all bazaar ended, we (special education teachers) gathered together to take pictures. It was always satisfying to have great team work, to back up eac…
