Furthermore Benny goes on to say “There is nothing else to love” when Mama says “I taught you to love” Walter (145).

My supervisors respected the privacy of every soldier within the platoon, I was never a witness of a soldiers being bash by a supervisor in front of their peers. I never saw an issue with single parents in the unit; those single parents were respected like any soldier in the unit that was single or married. The upmost level of empathy and sympathy was given to each soldier regardless of their family dynamic. My first three years in the military set the foundation to what I believe every leader and command should emulate however, in the last year I started to experience challenging experience of leadership, the kind of leadership that I now label as toxic leadership. I personally do not think that any parent wakes up and say “I would like to be a single parent” is a status that unfortunately is obtain by different pathway in life.

When a school has specific knowledge of a student’s violent disciplinary record, the school has received constructive notice of the impending harm. In Wood, there was enough to establish breach of duty because the school had been put on notice by the aggressor’s two year long violent disciplinary record. Wood v. Watervliet City Sch.

One of the scariest moments as a parent was when I dropped my child off to school on her first day of kindergarten. It was at that moment I had to put my trust in a complete stranger, as they would take care of my child for the next seven hours. I would imagine the parents would contact the administration to seek additional information deeming the teacher as competent. As an administrator I would listen to the concerns of the parents. In addition, I would let them know that all teachers are observed/evaluated to ensure the students are receiving proper instruction.
