Imagine that Loretta Claiborne, a Special Olympics athlete and inspirational speaker, came to your class. She talked about her childhood and how the Special Olympics helped her. She discussed perseverance and how she never gave up. Surprisingly, this really happened to some students in Mrs. Antoun’s class. Everyone really enjoyed Loretta’s visit for different reasons. ”My favorite thing that Loretta said was ‘If you look your best, you feel your best, and you do your best,’” said Mrs. Antoun. Although Loretta coming was fun, it was educational, too. Mrs. Antoun learned that even though Loretta’s mother seemed very sweet in the movie of Loretta’s life, her mom was actually quite strict in real life. Loretta taught everyone that even though overcoming obstacles isn’t easy, it will be worth it in the end.
