H1—Honor Student diversity and development.

Hello everyone,

Honoring student diversity and development is huge in the world of education, for how can a student develop without honoring their diversity in the classroom as a good thing. That to me starts with the teacher honoring the students’ diversity and development. As I have worked with children I have found that if I were to have not honored their diversity and development I would have ran into quite a few problems.

For example, I work with children with autism through the program Families Affected By Autism (FEAT), and through this program I as a volunteer was given a new child to work with every time we had an event. I never got the same child, and with autism there is such a wide range of different types of autism you never know what you are going to get behavior wise from a child, so I always had to honor the child’s diversity and development to make sure that they were taken care of in the best way possible. Now in a classroom I would have to do the same thing to be the best possible teacher that I could be. If a student had a different IEP than another student in my class I would have to honor that because that is what the student needs me to honor when it comes to their diversity and development within the classroom.

Thanks for reading!
