    Last night CBS had a wonderful Hallmark movie about Tourettes called "Front of the Class." It was a true story and the man became an outstanding teacher.

    If you ever get the chance to see it on DVD or video or it repeats on TV, it is certainly worth watching.

    This sounds like an interesting movie. I plan to put it in my Netflix queue. I have taught and worked with several students who have Tourettes.

    One student was so disabled by this disease, he could not do his school work. However, with medication and several years of intense therapy to deal with his disability, he is now in college with supportive services. He is doing very well and on the honor roll!!!

    This process did not happen overnight, but the fact that it happened shows that there is hope for those for have Tourettes.
