The Make A Difference Movie - The Teddy Stallard Story - by Mary Robinson Reynolds | The MasterMinding Maven® - Full Length Version
This short video reminds me of a situation I had when I first started teaching ten years ago. I was teaching third grade at the time (in public school) and I had a student who seemed lethargic and spent every morning asleep in my class. However, he woke up at lunch time, ravenous! I found out through a parent volunteer that he slept in a mattress on the floor with eight other people and his only meal consisted of the meal he received at school. (His mother was a crack addict, according to the volunteer.) Although you are not required to know the history of students to help them (and in many states it may be illegal)...sometimes, it may be helpful.
