garellaDefying all the impediments and prejudice, an Argentine woman has become a nursery teacher, with Down Syndrome.  Noelia Garella, 31, is the first person in Latin America with Down Syndrome to become a teacher. She has shattered stereotypes to achieve her dreams. She was so determined that it inspired her colleagues to hire her at the pre-school in the northern city of Cordoba.  “I adore this, and ever since I was little, I have always wanted to be a teacher, because I like children so much,” she told AFP, as reported by Independent. She further said that she want kids to read and listen because in society people have to listen to one another.

Parents and students have welcomed Garella with open arms. Her school authority supports her immensely. As per them, they see no reason that Garella cannot teach early-learning reading classes.  “We very quickly realised that she had a strong vocation. She gave what the children in the nursery classes most appreciate, which is love,” said Alejandra Senestrari, the former director of the school, as reported by Independent.

Noelia has proved that disability is no hindrance to being a great teacher. (The Logical Indian, October 2016).
