Fourth grader with autism gives touching speech to class

A fourth grader at a California school stood up at the front of his class and told his classmates about what it’s like to live with autism.

Footage filmed by Lisa Rachel Moe, who teaches fourth grade at Chino Valley Unified School District in San BernaRdino County, shows one of her students, Rumari, telling the class about his experience living with autism.

Rumari reiterated how important it is to make “everyone feel like a someone.”

“If I were unable to ever teach again or if there was ever a question to my path into this role as an educator, this moment solidified my purpose,” Moe wrote beneath the video, which had over 11,000 views.
