I woke up early on a Friday to be a part of my class and perform at the beginning of the mini-conference. I must say it was a unique experience and I had fun. Because of being part of my class, I was also able to attend the key note speaker session, Dr. John Passarini. He talked a lot about one of his students, Katie Lynch, who seemed to be an amazing person. The doctors didn't think she would be able to accomplish any of the things that she had when she was born. I liked her quote, that no one has disabilities, that everyone is just differently abled. I think she is an inspiration to not only people who have been diagnosed with disabilities, but to all people. Seeing the videos of her accomplishments made me feel like I can accomplish anything that I want to as well. Dr. Passerini seemed to have made connections with many of his students, he created these bonds and made people feel special. I hope that as a future physical educator, I can create that kind of bond with some of my students. I want to be a person that may make a difference in their lives.
