Special Ed Teacher Invites Entire Class To Her Wedding, And The Internet Falls In Love With Her

Kinsey French, a special education teacher from Kentucky, not only got engaged in front of her whole class, but also invited her students, all with Down Syndrome, to the ceremony. On June 3rd the whole class from Christian Academy Rock Creek became flower girls and ring bearers and led their teacher down the aisle.

“They were like family to me,” French told WLKY. “They were my first class and they’ve been my only class and so I knew I couldn’t have a special day without them.”

Later, the students told that their favorite parts were the food and the dancing. Take a look at the adorable photos by Lang Thomas Photography below.

God bless Kinsey and her husband, and the new family they are going to build! Thank you Lina for sharing such wonderful moments captured in the beautiful pictures. In a time when everyone is "talking" about diversity and inclusiveness, it is encouraging we see someone putting the talk in the walk. Kinsey - your love and kindness to these kids are inspiring! God bless!

Down syndrome kids have an extra chromosome of love, so apparently does their teacher. May she have a wonderful life.

A friend of mine has a child with Down Syndrome. Inclusiveness is a constant struggle. She melted when I sent her this link. Thank you for making her day!

Good on you Kinsey French for making the little kids in her class have special memories to last a lifetime time, and she got it all on film for them! Down Syndrome children are the most loving and have the biggest hearts. But I believe they rubbed off on there teacher! If I were a parent of a student in her class, I would be sending her a bouquet of gorgeous flowers upon her return! What she did was nothing short of amazing!!

I think she must be one of the bestest teachers out there. I know that decision must not have been easy, what with family wanting a lot of say and what not. But she stuck to her guns. Bully for her! She got her dream wedding! YAAAAAAY!!!! :-) ♡♡

Great story! Too bad you hacked it with a missed word and misspelled Down Syndrome in the first sentence.

"engaged in front of her whole class"? Is she a cog. One more example of the brain eating ameba at work. Nice one Lina D. The key to not looking like a fool on interweb is proofreading (which is different from spellchecking). FYI the correct term is get engaged. BTW it looked like a really nice party. BTW
