Maths teacher who uses crutches shares his experience with students
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a physically challenged maths teacher had defied odds to continue to impart knowledge to his students.
Michael, a physically challenged man, said that his student never liked him as they mocked him because he uses crutches for movement.
He added that when he heard them say “how can this guy with crutches be our mathematics teacher”, it hurt him so badly. The mockery continued as he was made fun of whenever he struggled to write the date at the top end of the blackboard because of his height.
His student nicknamed him Mr Crutches. He then decided to change his perspective and control his emotions since he could not change them.
