What is the opposite of mentor? I have had that. In many teachers and professionals that I have met along the way, that have done things wrong, let children down, shown gross ignorance, all those people have made me the person that I am today. BECAUSE, I have vowed to NEVER do that, and to make sure that all students under my care get a fair chance.
The prize person that tops them all was the head teacher that brought a child into my class, introduced him, then whispered
‘don’t worry about him, he will be out by Christmas’.
Thank you because you made me the special needs teacher and advocate for children’s rights, that I am today.
