Noticing The Shining Star In Every Child

Debora Wondercheck Executive Director, Founder of Arts & Learning Conservatory

Every child is special in their own way. Each of them have got some of the special quality of their own. Some are good in studies while others are good at art and craft. It is parents responsibility to make sure that the hidden talents of the kids are brought to the forefront.

Every person is the hero/heroine of their own story, and that includes children. You write that it's up to the parents to help them understand and cultivate that. I don't disagree with you, but it seems like there's a lot of pressure on teachers to take on some (if not all) of that responsibility.

I'm curious what people here think? Surely there's a role for teachers to encourage and nourish the children in their classrooms, but where are the lines? How much responsibility should teachers bear?

Why is it only the parents responsibility? I would assume any educator that really cares would also be on the lookout for what each child excels at.
