Lynda Barry's writing demonstrates to the reader that schools are more than just institutions that provide learning spaces. Ideally, every kid in a classroom should be living a happy life outside of school. But in reality, this is seldom the case, and some kids are living a rough time at home. Family values are fundamental to a kids' development, yet every day it seems families get disoriented with disputes life troughs in their paths. Forgetting of what truly is important. The school is like a second home to some kids. Barry's essay demonstrates this by explaining the effect school had on her. As a result, she sees the janitor in which she is delighted to see and quickly sparks a smile on her face. Another example is when she sees her teacher Mrs.LeSane and goes up to her and cries. Finally, the last case is the therapeutic value of art Mrs.Lesane believed on.
As a Learning Assistant, working in Year 3, I worked closely with a seven year old girl who, for the purpose of this case study, I will call Jane. Jane was a confident and happy girl who, despite not being particularly academically gifted, always participated with class discussions and activities enthusiastically.
The teacher supports the children's right to be different as the children's art and crafts are being displayed in classrooms by the teacher and classroom assistant. The positive impact is that the children can feel a sense of achievement by looking at what they have done. The children are encouraged by teachers to express themselves though their school bags and lunch boxes. The positive impact is that children are able to feel comfortable as they have familiar objects around them. In doing these things the teacher also promotes creativity and individuality.
In the article “Fremont high school”, Jonathan Kozol describes how the inability to provide the needed funding and address the necessities of minority children is preventing students from functioning properly at school. He talks to Meriya, a student who expresses her disgust on the unequal consideration given to urban and suburban schools. She and her classmates undergo physical and personal embarrassments. Kozol states that the average ninth grade student reads at fourth or fifth grade level while a third read at third grade level or below. Although academic problems are the main factor for low grades, students deal with other factors every day. For example, School bathrooms are unsanitary, air condition does not work, classrooms have limited
It is this time when children begin to understand how scary the world is and what it contains, such as sickness, pain, and scary creatures. They see the do's and don'ts, so they do what they need to protect themselves. From our childhood experiences, we are extra cautious about our surroundings such as the example of the child and the sand. This limits our act of searching and discovering the world, but it does not stop our curiosity and uncertainty. Cathy Davidson, the author of "Project Classroom Makeover", explains how a student's creative mind is pushed away to make room for academic studies. The educational system is inefficient in today's world. Believing that the problem comes from classrooms, she encourages teachers and parents to teach their students and children about their academics and take part in things that interest them. Teachers should help students focus on their studies and encourage students to find their passion of interests in the world. It is best for both teachers and students if the students can open up more and have their curiosity lead

While working at inbound end of line, I/A Boateng did not display any suspicious behavior, but he may have stolen an energy drink from the bistro in the b-building. While reviewing camera B-building.breakroom.2 at 10:35:02 AM, I/A Boateng appears to grab a sandwich from the bistro. Then, he goes to the kiosk, scans the item, cancels the order, and put the sandwich back. After at 10:35:47 AM, he goes back to one of the beverage cooler and grabs an energy drink. At this time, he stood at the kiosk for about 2 mins, then walked over to what appeared to be his bag, grabs something out of the bag, and proceeds to attempt to check his item out. Unfortunately, using camera B-building.Breakroom.3 at 10:37:57 AM, I was not able to see if he
When I first arrived the children were beginning bathroom time some of the children went to the bathroom while some students just got a diaper change. After that the children were allowed to play in the centers for a few minutes while the teacher prepared a group activity. I noticed one girl who we will call “Kristen” she was coloring in the art center that is when I saw her pick up a crayon the correct way but when she went to color she made a fist. I thought this was very interesting I also noticed that she was only using darker colors like brown and black. Her picture may have looked like a bunch of scribbles but I noticed that some lines were a lot darker than the others and most of the lines were going up and down but one made a sideways
In the story “This Year’s Class Picture” there is one character that stands out in and that is Ms. Geiss the determined/dedicated and kind Teacher that cares about all of her students no matter what happens. Her students were zombies and so teaching them was going to be different. She created food called learning rewards which were actually the rest of the staff in the building grinded up into chicken nuggets. She was also so dedicated that she went as far as taking pictures even tho they were all zombies. By her going through all the effort of getting all 23 of the zombie students ready and so called presentable, it shows that she is a very involved and committed to her job of teaching the students that come to her classroom everyday.”””The
Well for starters they put us in a cabin right next to a new cabin being built and the trailer for all the wood was pretty much on top of our fire pit. I had to call to see if they would move it, so instead of moving it they brought a new ring. our beautiful view around a fire pit was staring at the trailer. We had no picnic table it was placed in mudd at the new cabin. Our light went out in the main room I called for a new light bulb no big deal they came down, he busted the light bulb in the floor and most was left in the socket so he had to turn off the electric, well he left the door to the electric box wide open with a chair under it. Last thing I needed was my 4 year old messing with it while I was cleaning up the mess from the light
There lived a girl named Nancy in a little town of south western cost of India. She is born to a traditional Syrian Christian family; schooled from missionary schools, and was always a scary dream for her. The journey to school started when she was four year old, to lower kindergarten (LKG) and then upper kindergarten (UKG) before reaching to the much tougher stations of life. She usually woke up from dream with false perception of seeing her teacher nun standing in front of her trying to reach out for the coiled bamboo batten from the side pocket of her long white rob. She couldn't even wait to count on days left to finish journey of schooling and get out to a free ride in a magical bus of university. Learning was never felt as a need at that
Nathasha Ventura’s face was a welcoming sight as I did my case study assignment with her. She is such an easy going and caring spirit. Nathasha is 11 years old in the fifth grade. Because Nathasha is my cousin and I have had the privilege of observing her in the classroom over the past couple of years, I knew that she had grown accustomed to the norms and regulations of the school system. I would also see her eagerness to participate in class and her friendliness as she greeted her friends and interacted with them in the hallways and during lunch time. However, when it came to her schoolwork, she does not play around and means business. Since her house computer was damaged by a virus, she has had to visit the library frequently to use the

Today, when walking through a school, it may be easy to to pick out the kids that are living in poverty. These may be the kids that according to Julia Thompson (2017), a public school teacher, “because they do not wear the same fashionable clothes as their peers, poor students are often the targets of ridicule” (p. 1). Physical appearance these days is what a lot of kids look for each other to be friends. These kids may not be able to afford required school supplies either. Some school supplies can be very pricey. Types of things like this may cause low self-esteem and little focus in school, but teachers can help. (Thompson, 2017, p. 1)
