In Jeff Delp's post "Empathy and Difference Making Matter" , Delp talks about his passion in helping the Good Neighbor Orphanage in Haiti, fighting poverty, and helping students in poor countries, and even here in America. He understands that he cannot change a whole country, but he can help to change the lives of a few students there. He also talks about the difference possible in the classrooms if teachers act like caring human beings, even when teachers cannot change a students home life.He leaves links to donate to the orphanage and further licks the the orphanage project blog.
COMMENT: Hi, I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I am inspired by your passion for not only your students, but other students around the world. That is the mark of a good teacher, caring that All students learn, even without funding!
I also read Delp's post titled "The Marginalization of Children" . Delp discusses same education for all, not just for a few, and if that is how society really treats children that want to learn. Are all students given equal education opportunities? Schools and the government promise this to be true, but it doesn't seem that way. He says that the poorer students who have outside issues are likely to be the students left out. He describes reaching ALL students as nearly impossible and public school as welcoming all, but only because it has to. All children deserve the right for proper education, no matter their financial or home status.
