Students Learn Lesson About Overcoming A Disability

Moral of the story is to be like Bessie

By Kasey Schoch, AE/MS teacher
Thomas Farmen,(author of Watching the Lights Go Out, talks to students at AE/MS about his book and his dog Bessie. Students learned about the challenges Bessie had to overcome as her blindness slowly progressed. Bessie tops off her visit with her “Toss the cookie and catch it” trick. This may be a typical dog trick, but remember, Bessie is blind. Photo: Kasey Schoch
