I am a first year teacher and will be teaching either elementary special education in a self-contained classroom or high school resource/inclusion. I was raised in a bigger city in another part of the country, and now will be teaching in the small, rural, high poverty community where I have lived for a few years now. I am in the middle of reading "A Framework for Understanding Poverty," and it has enlightened me a lot, but I am looking for any practical advice I can get on teaching students living in generational poverty and communicating with parents as well. I want to come across as nothing but loving and respectful, but I feel like I need some tips from someone with experience in this situation so I can put my foot in my mouth as little as possible. Thanks for all your help!
