When a person becomes a teacher, it ought to be because they love, I mean LOVE children and desire making a positive difference in the lives of their students.
When a person becomes a special needs teacher, this love and desire to make a difference in childrens’ lives needs to be multiplied several times over.
There is no greater trust that a parent can give than for a person to spend hours of time with their child. When a child doesn’t have the ability to communicate clearly, the trust factor has to be even greater.
It is with a heavy heart that I share this:
This is unacceptable. I believe it is time to have cameras in all special needs classrooms first and then in every classroom across the country. When I was in fourth, fifth and sixth grade, I had teachers who were abusive. This was in an academically talented situation. That is why I say cameras need to be in EVERY classroom.
Who will speak out for our precious, precious children?
