Teacher to Compete on 'The Amazing Race'

A special education teacher will be among the contestants on this season's "The Amazing Race," the CBS reality show in which teams race around the world while tasked with sundry obstacles and "roadblock" competitions, according to DisabilityScoop. Jennifer Young, 26, from Stone Mountain, Ga., who will be racing with her younger brother, says her work in the classroom has prepared her to perservere in the face of challenges.

And she may need all the perserverance she can muster. From the DisabilityScoop story:

Other contestants on the show include a pair of "Survivor" winners, two Olympians, a former NFL player and the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone.

As if her day job isn't hard enough. ... The new season of the show begins Sept. 25.
