Despite 70 Percent Of Our Students Being Low Income Jones #11 Jerseys

Nov 20th 2013 at 7:00 PM

As an educator reading the nov.7 editorial?Solving the disconnect between stellar staff and students,?I couldn?T help thinking that the real disconnect was the necessity for more belief in our teachers and our children.Doubtless factors like poverty and parental engagement are obstacles but they are not insurmountable ones, and every day there are teachers who can and do transform the lives of students most in need.To see it at work, one need only step into the classrooms of howard high school in wilmington, where i have taught english for the past four years.Here, despite 70 percent of our students being low income, student growth has consistently outpaced state averages on standardized tests.And through focused effort, we went from 42 percent and 46 percent of 10th-Grade students scoring proficient in math and reading in 2010 to 78 percent and 80 percent just last year.How did it happen?A lot of hard work, including changing large parts of our curriculum and teaching practices.But fundamentally it started with a change in our beliefs?That teachers can make a difference, and that all children can learn.
