Great read. I totally related to you when you mentioned that you would do your best to accommodate your student’s needs and that it was a sensitive topic. I have also worked with homeless people, juveniles and adults in jails. One of the reasons I decided to become a teacher was to try to reverse these trends. So I do think that as a teacher we need to do our best to accommodate every single population. As teachers we will see all kind of diverse individuals. One thing you made me wonder is how we should try to communicate with those that have less resources or lack of parent interest. Some students don’t really have parent support at all. Like I have talked to kids in jail where their parents are gang members and let them do whatever they want. Maybe try to connect with these students in different ways, but in order to do this, we need to get to know the students from likes/dislikes, to home life and parent/student dynamics. I am curious to know what you think about this.
