After a recent rock climbing program, a special education teacher said, “Carlos is the most timid student in our class. He needs someone to accompany him on trips outside our classroom. When he said he wanted to participate in a rock climbing adventure, I fully expected him to be too afraid to climb.”
And yet, Carlos walked up to the cliff again and again – saying he wanted to keep climbing and take greater challenges. He out-climbed the rest of his class and was sad when the day came to a close. “I’ve never seen him so confident!” his teacher told us afterwards.
