10 Things I Witnessed Educators Doing During the Last Month

I am in a lot of schools and interact with, co-teach, and observe educators at work with students.  Here are just a few of the things I've witnessed during the last month:

  1. Counseling parents of a former student whose child is being bullied in and out of school and then securing help for the parent and the child
  2. Procuring eye glasses for children whose families cannot afford to do so
  3. Buying dinners for children and their families on a daily basis
  4. Buying heating fuel and having it delivered to the family of a student who did not have the money to buy it.
  5. Advocating in person for children to get into specific schools
  6. Taking instructional time to better ensure children were ready for high stakes placement tests
  7. Clothing a child and family.
  8. Reading with a child after school as she had no one at home who could do so.
  9. Volunteering to teach a child to read and doing so each day.
  10. Mentoring a former student by visiting with him in his classroom and co-teaching
