We all love to hear inspiring stories that make us regain faith in humanity, like the one about the teacher who learned sign language when he found out that he would have a deaf and mute student.
Talking about inclusion is not simply taking into account and respecting others, but a reflection of how important it is to implement learning of all kinds, because just as the mother tongue must prevail and learn English, it would be good that in basic education we will be taught sign language to become familiar with people who live in a situation of hearing disability.
In this way we want to present the story of Yetsi Ruiz’s father, who spread the anecdote through TikTok and shared his happiness and pride at seeing his father’s effort in educating all the students in his classroom, without leaving out people with disabilities. different capacities.
After graduating from the University of the South of Mexico, Yetsi’s father has dedicated himself to teaching and has faced each of the challenges that occur in the world of education.
In the short video that Yetsi uploaded to TikTok, we can see her father studying sign language in his spare time to adapt to the student and integrate her into his classes. On her part, the tiktoker She expressed being very proud of him.
I will always admire this man as a father and as a professional. I love you, old man.
Many of the Internet users reacted to this clip with positive comments, because seeing the teacher review his lessons with great enthusiasm fills anyone with tenderness.
It is important to point out that in Mexico, and because Benito Juárez promoted it, the National School for the Deaf and Dumb existed. However, it was unduly closed and replaced by clinics and special education centers that offer deaf children and young people no more than very basic access to Spanish and very little general knowledge and, in some cases, some manual trade.
Although there are different foundations and centers specializing in sign language, educational programs have excluded deaf-mute teachers and have not contemplated the compulsory teaching of Mexican Sign Language despite the fact that 90 percent of the children and young people who will attend They will end up integrated into that community.
