#ICE2018 - Keynote - Special Books for Special Kids

Special Books by Special Kids

I had the privilege of attending the # ICE2018 (Illinois Computing Educators) conference this past week and one of the keynote speakers was Chris Ulmer.  Chris is known as the teacher behind the books Special Books by Special Kids.  He started his journey in a special ed classroom in south Florida and now has millions of followers from his video series which started with his students in his classroom.

Chris is dynamic, emotional and real. He interviews neurodiverse individuals and shares their stories. His belief of every person has a story comes alive in his interviews.  It has been a long time since I have heard such a good speaker which inspired me and pulled at my emotional heart strings. The stories he shared were inspiring to say the least, the kids were incredible, and there was not a dry eye in the house. Take a look at Bella’s Story.  

Please make time to look at some of his videos, as well as his social media handles.
