Tip of the Day:
Your students are REAL people! Many educators fail to take into account what happens outside of the classroom as having an impact on their students’ success. I know that I have forgotten to think outside of my classroom on occasion. However, our student may be dealing with far more than a dog eating his or her homework, and we should be able to link these students with resources that will give them a chance to succeed.
