Julie Thurley: It’s What We Do
At school #42 — Abelard Reynolds — we are a dedicated staff who conducted a walk to intervention to meet the needs of all students at risk in our building. Teachers gave up planning time, lunch hours and stayed late after school to close the gap between minorities and education. I'm so tired of people saying teachers don't do enough for children. Children come first in our building and we are a community that puts children first.
