Aquarium teaches lessons to special ed students

“Good morning. Welcome to Mystic Aquarium,” Wilcox told them.

Martin punched their tickets and handed them back. And if the visitors had asked, he would have been ready to tell them the times of the sea lion show or where the bathrooms are.

“You have a nice day,” Martin told them.
