I just read about how as a special education teacher, I need to help students learn self-care skills so that students can learn to be more independent. So self-care skills include eating, grooming and toileting. I just learned that if a student struggles with toileting, I have to check every 15-30 minute for wetness. Sometimes, diapers might be an appropriate choice.
But yeah, like I have to go into the bathroom with them and teach them how to hold their crotch and do their thang. It’s recommended that the adult is the same gender as the student but in some cases, I might just have to be the one to help them… And of course, I have to tell them what I’ll be doing before I approach to help them or else I can be in really tricky waters and be sued for sexual harassment or something. I appreciate that dolls can be used as visual support so students can learn by watching how it’s done.
dang ya’ll dang. Teachers: We are used to sticky hands, germs, messes, kids wetting pants, lack of grooming and hygiene skills, etc. I am learning to be less grossed out by a lot of thingssssss.
We had a Stocktoncitycouncilman come & speak to us tonight. He shared a bit about his plans for decreasing crimes & just asked us about our concerns & everybody was saying how scary it is and blah blah but I rose my hand and stood up for stockton!! I love stockton. The people here are friendly. Yeah, crimes happen here more often than others but there has been progress and people just need to be smart. Don’t be walking under the bridge at 10pm but then again, you’d be careful about doing that anywhere, really. Don’t feed into the problem but be a part of the solution! shoot, getting all defensive over hurr. 209 represent, ya’ll.
That plot-twist moment when your professor makes you stick around in class even though your speaker hasn’t showed up for an hour and a half… but then he comes and he is wearing a nice fitted suit. OKAY, I SEE YOU CITY COUNCILMAN SIR. you is old but I like yo attire.
