1. In my last school, we were required to fill out a paper for each of our students. We had to put a bunch of information about them; academic level, who they should/shouldn’t be placed with and anything else we thought the next year’s teacher needed to know. I honestly never put anything that wasn’t factual (grades, demographics, etc.). And I never read the ones given to me by the previous teachers. It’s quite unfair to base opinions off of preconceived notions with anyone, especially children. Even though it can sometimes be extremely difficult, we have to start each day with fresh eyes. Our students deserve that. Everyone deserves that.

    “People are often shaped by their environments and if we simply can give them the love that all people need, and try to always focus on looking at them in the positive, they will do better”.

    Another powerful post, George. :)
