Description - Front of the Class by Brad Cohen

As a child with Tourette syndrome, Brad Cohen was ridiculed, beaten, mocked, and shunned. As a teen, he was viewed by many as purposefully misbehaving, even though he had little power over the twitches and noises he produced, especially under stress. Even today, Brad is sometimes ejected from movie theatres and restaurants. But Brad Cohen's story is not one of self-pity. His unwavering determination and fiercely positive attitude conquered the difficulties he faced in school, in college, and while job hunting. Brad never stopped striving, and after twenty four interviews, he landed his dream job: teaching grade school and nurturing all of his students as a positive, encouraging role model.
