All Students Meme

I've been reading a blog from Christine Southard recently. She is a special education teacher in NY and a very big advocate for inclusion of all students. In fact she currently co-teaches in a classroom with both general education students and special education students. This unique setting gives her a very interesting take on teaching. She participated in a internet Meme (sort of a thought that gets passed around) and I thought it would be interesting to share my feelings on the meme:

There are 3 things I believe about all students:

1. All students can learn
2. All students deserve the opportunity to communicate
3. All students are children first

As teachers, I believe it is our responsibility to help our students achieve these 3 things EVERYDAY.

I'm going to tag a couple of people to help continue this meme:

Jeanette Van Houten

Sam Sennott
Kate Ahern
Richard Byrne
Ricky Buchanan
Yuichi Tamano
