"Front of The Class: How Tourette Syndrom made me The Teacher I Never Had" by Brad Cohen and Lisa Wysocky

Front of The Class:  How Tourette Syndrom made me The Teacher I Never Had by Brad Cohen and Lisa Wysocky is about Brad Cohen and his Tourette Syndrome which is something that causes him to make strange noises and movements that he cannot control.  Growing up, he was bullied by his dad and his schoolmates, yet had a burning desire to be a teacher.  This book tells about how he overcame so many obstacles to achieve his goal and is truly inspiring.  Front Of The Class was so good that they made a Hallmark movie about it.  I enjoyed both the book and the movie very much recommend it to anyone.
--Gerard's review 2/25/10 (5+ stars) Karen enjoyed the movie too but did not read the book.
