Poverty impacts so many children's lives. Learning how to properly engage them is very important.

Helpful series in bringing renewed understanding of the many causes of poverty, as well as the devastating and distracting effects that poverty has on our students, who through no fault of their own, find themselves in those situations. Reminds me of why I initially became a teacher, and to be ever mindful of my response to distractions, unwanted behaviors, and lack of effort/low work production from some of my students. Thank you.
