It's Day 27 of the New 31 Day Challenge with Crumpet's Nail Tarts and the theme is to create a mani inspired by myself! Let me talk about myself a little bit here. I am a Special Education Teacher. I have always been involved with Special Education (of all ages) ever since high school and it has become my passion. I have had students with all different types of disabilities ranging from mental to physical. It may sound silly, but I love my job and I wouldn't change anything about it (even though sometimes I get beat up and come home with bruises). I have always been an advocate for Autism Awareness and have had some really amazing students living with Autism that have impacted my life - so that's where my mani comes into play. I decided to create the Autism Puzzle Piece on my nails to represent ME and how inspired I become by these children. I will never stop helping and doing all I can to better their lives. It is definitely a challenge, as a teacher, to differentiate lessons to fit each student (since they all learn differently) but it is so rewarding when you see them progress and grow.
