Does anyone have experiences teaching in a low-income school? I have a scholarship that requires that I student teach in a low-income school and teach in a low-income school for two years. I would ideally like to work in a low-income school long term. I really love my students, but I'm starting to gain a better picture of the challenges (and I haven't even taken over yet!) It shocks me how low some of our students are and I feel like we are covering curriculum from a grade level below us, which I feel isn't fair to our students (but what else can we do...). I'm also frustrated by the lack of resources teachers/especially students have and the lack of admin support for discipline issues. I also know some of my students have difficult home lives which is hard on an emotional level. I'm not sure what my question is, but I would like to hear any advice or other experiences teaching in a high needs school.
