With each new school year comes new challenges and requirements. There is the uncertainty of working with news staff members and the concern over a smaller budget.
Instead of thinking about challenges and requirements, I thought about the children. My school is a Title I school that receives federal funding due to the number of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. We also serve many students who live with family members other than their parents. Many of our students are part of families that are struggling economically because of unemployment and underemployment. Yet while their needs are great, I believe if we commit ourselves to do all we can to reach out to our students, they will be successful.
So I put this video together to share with the staff at my school. I hope that even if you are not a school teacher, this video will inspire you in your relationships with all children you come in contact with.
