Chris Hall, a teacher at a school in Dorchester, Mass., and a member of the Boston Teachers Union/AFT Local 66, is making art with students with autism—and his students are making impressive strides, thanks to his unique teaching gifts.
“Chris brought something out of my child and out of our kids at the Lee School. He made the impossible possible,” said Liz Gomes. Her son, nine-year-old Mason, is one of Hall’s students. Non-verbal until the age of five, Mason deals with autism and ADHD.
