The See Me Project

My name is Mrs. Bailey Koch and I am a Special Education teacher in Gothenburg, Nebraska. My students and I have created an inspirational and moving video about the importance of accepting and supporting people with disabilities. One student featured in the video is a Special Olympics athlete named Jarred who has Down Syndrome. He and his family are very proud that he was featured in the video and are wonderful advocates for the rights of those with disabilities. We are attempting to make our video go viral and would very much appreciate the help in spreading this positive message. Would you please consider sharing our video in any ways that you can think of? The video speaks for itself and we are confident that you will appreciate and support our message. Thank you so very much for your help.
