"Special Education classes have helped me adjust my teaching to fit every student." – Gary Lai, MIT '06

"Today was the day I have been working toward for over a year. I walked into my very own classroom today as a teacher!

Because of [the MIT faculty], I have the tools I will need to be successful in my career!" – Kandi Fields, MIT '08
