SEYMOUR, Ind. — As a new classroom instructional assistant at Margaret R. Brown Elementary School this year, Josh Speidel takes his job seriously.
But not so serious that the 19-year-old doesn’t smile, laugh and cut up with students and staff.
His sense of humor in the face of great physical, mental and emotional challenges is inspiring to both the students and co-workers with whom he now works.
