SUMMARY

After reading an article on NASA's Space Camp, high school football coach and special education teacher Mike Kersjes de-cided that this program-where students undergo tests used to prepare astronauts for journeys on the space shuttle-was just the exper-ience his special education students needed. There was just one problem: convincing administrators, parents, and the students themselves that even with disabilities like Tourette syn-drome, Down syndrome, and dyslexia, they could succeed in a program originally designed for gifted students. With limitless faith in his students and unswerving persistence, Kersjes finally got his kids to Camp, where they turned in a performance no one will ever forget. Kersjes' story is one of determination and perseverance, of empowerment and empathy. This book is for anyone who likes to see the underdog triumph.Kersjes, Mike is the author of 'Smile As Big As the Moon A Special Education Teacher, His Class, and Their Inspiring Journey Through U. S. Space Camp', published 2003 under ISBN 9780312303143 and ISBN 0312303149.
