Working with a Diverse Student Population: The Mission Is Not to Save, but to Reflectively Teach
Kirylo, James
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v1 n1 Jan-Jun 2006
When teachers view their mission as one to "save" children, the possibility then exists that they might not "save" them all. In fact, it is not uncommon that a teacher utters the words, "I can't save them all." The mission, however, of the teacher is not to "save." Rather, the mission of a teacher is to reflectively teach and to continuously seek ways to facilitate meaningful learning. In that light, this article examines the notion of what it means to reflectively teach, particularly as it relates to working with a diverse student population relative to different attention spans and capabilities of staying on task.
