GSEHD student Joseph Braswell is highlighted in an episode of Sesame Street's Sesame Workshop. Joseph, who is working on his master's in special education for children with emotional and behavioral disabilities, currently teaches pre-K students at DC Bilingual Public Charter School.

In the video he says, "I'm making a difference every day by showing up. I'm making a difference every day by telling my kids that I do care about them. I'm making a difference by teaching them about empathy. They may not learn it in one day, but me showing up everyday is ensuring that they are going to learn it eventually."
