The teacher’s students and his relationship with them play an essential role in his ability to effectively manage his anxiety. A Special Education in Anxiety is a semi-autobiographical work, according to Smith, who teaches students with special needs in Washington state and received his master’s degree from BC’s Lynch School in 2010. He talked about his book and his vocation as a teacher with his hometown newspaper, The Columbian.
