ROBERTSDALE, Ala. (WKRG) — His students, with autism or severe behavior problems, can sometimes be a little unruly. But Todd Cross says mostly, they’re just sweet kids who he loves dearly.
“I have seven now, which seems like not very many, but it’s a handful,” he said.
One of his students, Blake, is autistic and likes to work puzzles between lessons. Blake’s mother told us about this special, special education teacher. She says her son can be stubborn at times. But she said Cross seems to have a natural ability to get through to them.
