Bridgeport Superintendent Fran Rabinowitz said, “Currently, more than one and four kids that are eligible for pre k in Bridgeport do not have access … That’s unacceptable.” Another benefit to the grant is salary. Preschool teacher salary will be bumped up to elementary and high school level salary. Also, professional development will be improved. There will be a new PD system with individualized coaching and mentoring to help better the CT preschool programs. And even another benefit to the already amazing ones is that funding will go to provide health screens, referrals, and assistance in getting needed services says reporter Kathleen
With a four-day school week helping schools and students, the only other people to help is the parents. The four-day school week would lead to lengthened school days, giving the regular-hour, eight to five, working parents the ability to cancel out after school care. One parent even said it herself “‘I approve of the four-day week’” (Johnston). “Sixty-seven percent of parents stated that their child liked the new schedule, 60 percent of parents thought their child was doing well, and 82 percent of students stated that they liked the calendar’” (Yarbrough and
Member, National Honors Society, As an active member of National Honors Society one of our main tenets of leadership is building a strong presence in the community as a whole-school or otherwise. This manifested into offering after school tutoring in math and science areas where the school struggles in terms of college readiness. I was initially apprehensive, wondering if people would show up after school to study. But, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people willing to take charge of their own learning and taking the after school tutoring extra help. Because I was actively tutoring students I was able to improve my own knowledge of the course material and continuously learn and improve myself.
Ayleen Garcia 1 A/B Teacher: Ms. Zapata Where: Seabourn Elementary Time: 3 hours 8 minutes My observation purpose for this week was to observe and figure out the inclusion plan indicated for the classroom. A bilingual paraprofessional comes and visits the classroom and helps the bilingual children that are in need of more help than usual. She “ties the knot” on “low babies” who tend to fall faster behind than the other students. There is help for both the teacher and students when this person comes to their classroom usually from 11:15 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., which is usually a great help to Ms. Zapata, since the bilingual professional is like a teacher aid (which includes the student interns). The bilingual professional comes up with resources
you are probably thinking you can 't learn like that. Well, kids that can 't hear need to learn too. That 's why schools for the deaf opened. Just because someone has a disability, doesn 't mean they should be denied the opportunity to learn the same as everyone else. Saint Joseph 's institute, South Carolina school, Scranton State and Saint Rita school are all schools for people who are deaf or hard of hearing kids.
Homeschooling is not new; in colonial days children were educated at home by parents, tutors and older children. The one room school house was created by families that got together and hired a teacher. Homeschools are more likely to join the charter movement than get back into the public school system. Most of these parents hope their children will attend college so they must learn how to assess their children’s progress against higher education admission standards (20). These parents must find resources and make effective use of scarce time and money.
School counselor’s work with students, parents and teachers in a variety of ways like assisting parents to make informed decisions about their childhood educations (“Going to a Public School”).In Maurice’s case, one of his issues was hearing from his mother and his cousins that he could neither read nor write, a thought he was made to believe (99). With a counselor’s help Maurice would cope with his problems by finding ways that can help him. In all, as stated in the preceding paragraphs, after school programs and Schools counseling would help Maurice enormously in school. With the proper approach, resources and the help from school. I believe Maurice and every child who struggles with school would begin to enjoy it once more.
In 1700`s education wasn 't for everyone. It was for people who had the money to pay for it, but now that changed because kids are given the chance to go to school without their parents paying for it. “The President’s 2017 budget request recognizes the importance of this goal through significant new investments in three key areas: high-quality early learning; stronger and more diverse schools; and increased access to evidence and data to help all of us improve outcomes for students.”("EDgov Blog"). Over the last seven years”, the Obama Administration has fought to improve outcomes for underserved students through its major education initiatives by supporting states in their efforts to ensure quality teaching in every classroom; raise standards for all students; build systems to improve instruction; and significantly improve low-performing schools.”("Equity of Opportunity"). These two quotes show that people are trying to make kids education better.
My observation four was conducted at the same location as my previous observations, at Jackson STEM Dual Language Magnet Academy in Pasadena California. I found it difficult to make objective observations since getting to know my students more. The question I took with me into this observation came from our class agenda the week of October 18th, the question that I based my observation was “ does treating all children fairly mean treating them the same?”. It was nice to see how the teacher took notes on each child during the day to report to parents at a later time concerning the progress their child has been making behaviorally and academically. This observation allowed me to really process if the above question was to be true or false.
Gale indicates that a student 's social context can determine 70% of their level of success in education. Only the remaining 30% is determined by other factors such as the quality of teaching that they receive. He states that for some students, coming to school is like “entering a different world”. Therefore, teachers need to make a particular effort to help students from lower socio-economic backgrounds access the contents of their virtual schoolbag, and make use of their cultural capital. One way that a teacher can ensure that the cultural capital of all students is recognised, understood, and valued is by fostering a strong home-school connection with the families of all students (Ewing, 2013. p.98).
In this practicum I will narrate an interview that was done with a Hispanic parent. I will describe her and her family structure. I will also elaborate on her involvements in her children academics, and teacher parent relationship. Also better ways to encourage parents to get involved in their children education will be added, and how teachers can assist with making the parents feel welcomed inside of the classroom. On Monday November 14, I asked a parent at a childcare center would they mind having a thirty-minute interview with Ms. Key, concerning their child’s education and parent teacher partnership.
The results will determine if the use of (EIBI) in a daycare setting will successfully benefit 2- 4 years old toddlers. Also, the results will help determine if (EIBI) should be used instead or with ABA. An convenience sample of teachers with students diagnosed with autism in a large daycare will be the focus of this study. The participants will be male and female teachers in the 25-55 age range. Teachers will be interviewed and a survey will be conducted during the beginning and the end of the intervention phases.
Head Start provide structured curriculum learning blocks to promote cognitive development and preparing the children for school readiness. The goal of the program is to enhance parent involvement with their children’s progress in school which they can eventually carry on into the adulthood. Serving more than 31 million participants 1965, the Federal Government does heaving funding’s towards the program.
1. Based on this week 's readings, how might teachers best support the needs of Hmong students who might have special needs? When working with Hmong American students who might have special needs, what should teachers be aware of when working with their parents? Research showed that Hmong parents cared deeply about their children. They want all of their children to succeed despite how they are born with their unique character traits.
