Professional hopes and goals

My hope is that I continue to be mindful and culturally-sensitive of what I think, say and do when working with children and families, as I believe that you can make or break children and families in an instant, especially when you knowingly or even unknowingly disrespect their family culture and their broader culture as a whole.

  1. Justine,

    I think unknowlingly disrespecting a child or family is the most frightening thing to me. I would never want to do that.

You are right – the change begins with each of us! Good luck with your future courses.

    I love that your goal is to help other educators have the same mindset that we have gained from this class. I love the way you ended your blog with pictures instead of words. You are right, we were given the ticket. I have enjoyed this class with you.

I love the motivation pictures you included…thank you 🙂
