    I noticed your post about teaching. I'm looking into teaching and will likely start with subbing in social studies. I am also a quadriplegic with a similar level injury am curious about doing the job and doing things like taking pills while at school.
    What was your experience? Was there any difference how younger vs. older kids reacted to you and say your wheelchair?
    It would be great to talk about this topic more.
