    Good morning everyone, 

    I'm a foreign languages teacher. I teach in a Vet school in Sicily. I'm glad to show you my experiences in working in a difficult social contest. In fact, Vet school students are often from a very difficult social backgrounds. We work with refugees, crime related guys, disadvantages ones in general. I'm proud in saying that Vet School teachers are daily militant with those types of guys, giving their best in order to solve such behavioral problems, spreading daily the concept that the best way for dealing with these students is the good example, helping them to solve their big problems and starting to follow a new way of life, so that to change their ones.
