A Real Teacher of the Year

One of the most beautiful interactions between a teacher and a student that I have ever seen.  I know we Sped parents long for teachers who are like this wonderful teacher. 

The teacher, Chris, has his own Facebook page, Special Books for Special Kids.

(No negative comments, please. Let's be positive on humanity and relationships between teachers and students.)

I love this, thank you for posting. Here is another glaring example of how our class sizes impact the relationship between students and teachers. I rarely have time to encourage this kind of conversation, or any conversation that isn't academically focused. I try each day to connect with 5 students in a meaningful way, and each day it feels like it's not enough. I have 29 kindergartners this year, and many of them have profound social/emotional needs. I am failing them.

As a volunteer in a HS special ed class I have the privilege of listening to students. They really want to be heard. Connecting with them is the reason I go.
