The Heart of my Classroom

As a special education teacher, this article speaks to the heart of me and my classroom. Every student has the right to a public education where they feel safe and accepted. One thing that we, as teachers, have to understand is that we can only control how we work with a student throughout the school day. We cannot control a student’s behavior or the setting events in their life that lead them to their behaviors.

As a parent myself, my goal is to help my own children understand that every single one of us is unique in our own ways. We all have faults; do not judge others for theirs.

The Central Lyon Community School District offers career and technical programs in the following areas of study: Business Education, Family & Consumer Sciences Education, Industrial Arts Education and Vocation Agriculture Education.
