Devon Carrow looks at his weekly goals while attending school from home, Jan. 22, 2013, in Orchard Park N.Y. Carrow's life-threatening allergies don't allow him to go to school.
"We don't treat him any differently," said his teacher, who wears a microphone that amplifies her voice, which helps all of the students (including Devon) hear her.
"He still has to turn in his homework," his teacher said. "He still has to have his mother sign notebooks. He still has a job in this classroom he's the greeter. And he still has to pay attention although there's times I look and he's off, the cat's coming in the room."
