Bio for RYAN TRELEVEN
Thomas Jefferson created a great promise for our country when he advocated for a free public education. By using the argument that informed and free citizens are more likely to find personal happiness and positively contribute to our society, he outlined the blueprint for our countries prosperity. Although it has taken many years for our great nation to realize this promise for all citizens regardless of their race, gender or abilities; we have been fortunate enough to witness the emancipation of students with disabilities in our educational system. I have been honored with the opportunity to work with many of these students in the classroom. What a wonderful gift they are for all of us!
