People First.

As a future educator, advocacy is an important factor I must consider in empowering all of my students.

Inclusion of children with special needs and disabilities begins with adults who are respectful of all children’s rights to belong and participate fully in early care and education settings. All children have the right to dignity and respect and not to be judged by their special needs or disability. To ensure this right of respect, I will use People First Language.

Just another first day of school

I’m getting reaallll tired of this back-to-school stuff.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the new semester:

PROs:

  • getting new school supplies!
  • Spring = better weather is on it’s waaaay!
  • reuniting w/ friends I haven’t seen in a month!

CONs:

  • TEXTBOOK PRICES
  • ASSIGNED READINGS (yeah, right)
  • break is over. 😦

I can’t really complain yet because it’s only just the beginning of syllabus week but my schedule is going to be totally wack and i have so many assignments and its Methods Block which means I get to hear how hard this semester is going to be from every professor (yaaaaaaay.)

On the bright side, I will be in placement (in the classroom) for a full day each week so fingers crossed that my cooperating teacher is a good fit. 🙂

I just want to get through this semester alive. #116days
