The fact that the book can still today make readers learn very important life lessons, shows that it is still a very relevant book almost 70 years later.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to intern at the Waterfront Public School and having the chance to work with two very different students with DD. This experience gave me a better understanding of how the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) employs DSWs and how they value our role within their classrooms. I was fortunate enough to work with a collaborative team of staff that encouraged my professional growth by allowing me to assess and implement new teaching strategies. This team also provided me with much needed feedback and criticism along the way, which I valued and learned from. In addition, this education support placement allowed me to fulfill many performance elements related to learning outcome seven of the DSW Program Manual.
As I facilitated the professional learning communities, I was able to empower the teachers to create a safe, supportive environment, encouraged them to take leadership of the group, and provided a forum for creativity and growth. I found that many of my skills used for coaching were valuable in creating a safe learning community. For example, building trust and positive relationships is key for teachers to feel safe to share experiences and ideas. In addition, I empowered the teachers to define what the vision for their group would be, become leaders of the group, and generate topics to promote

CRITIQUE OF ARTICLE: I thought this to be an excellent article that provided a clear understanding of the paraeducator’s role in the classroom and how to make the educational team a success. There were several key suggestions that I know as a regular educator would be and have been excellent tools for my understanding of new strategies and teaching techniques. I can see where these would be extremely beneficial for the paraeducator as well. I love the way the authors say to include the paraeducators in setting the tone for the classroom by creating the shared philosophy together.

The books urged teachers to learn about the different ways in which culture affects the beliefs about schooling and education in general

It was also inferred that he would have to go to college and buckle down, which meant premed, prelaw, or major and business.
