A student of mine has been some unwise choices which regrettably has led to spending lunchtimes and snack times with me for the next week.
This could easily be viewed as a burden, particularly for the child.
Yet over the week, we’ve been spending a lot of time really talking about the things going on in life and how that impacts decision-making.
Oddly today, the child came up eagerly asking what he needed to talk and think about next.
Every child needs a really trusted adult in their life to turn to.
As a teacher, you’ll sometimes be that person.
