    Back in the 1970s my schoolteacher mom taught a special ed class. She loved it. I was horrified because she had no special training, suffered from depression and was not very emotionally stable. She was a good teacher in many ways, but I thought the best she could be for that particular group of students was a babysitter. Even then, I wasn't confident that her patience and communication skills would be equal to the task.
