“My ideal teacher would have great awareness of my needs. I would like them to be organised and patient. I want to meet my classmates before joining the class. I would say that I am an individual who thinks he is important. I feel that I am important because I have so much happiness. I would like to have the Jewish Torah in the room. I would like to have a computer.”
