Argentine woman becomes first nursery teacher with Down’s syndrome


Noelia Garella has overcome prejudice surrounding her condition to become a favourite with her pupils.

Garella’s case set a precedent after the school confronted a taboo: could a person with a cognitive syndrome be in charge of a class?

youngsters with this condition an absolute delight to be with.
