"Excellence in Educational Support"

Teaching Students from Poverty

Led by: Crystal Cooke, School Climate Specialist, North Georgia RESA

Who should attend?  Classroom Teachers, Counselors, Instructional Coaches, Administrators, PBIS Coaches

Most educators have grown up in middle class families with middle class attitudes and middle class belongings.  Therefore, we often find it difficult to understand and to relate to behaviors, beliefs, and social mores different from those to which we have become accustomed. 

Teachers often conclude that students living in poverty have little or no chance of making academic progress or achievement and are therefore, not given the time or the emphasis of those more aesthetically pleasing children.

Perhaps, a change in our mindset rather than a change in their circumstances can make the real difference!
