Among School Children Among School Children 1. What are your thoughts about what happened to  Clarence? It is a teacher's job to try and reach all of his/her students. That is  extremely difficult with children that have no problems. In Clarence's case, Mrs.  Zajac tried everything she knew to get through to this troubled child. When it  comes to the best education of one child or twenty the choice must be the  majority of the children. Clarence's disruptive behavior was hurting the rest of the  class. The only way to solve that problem is have him removed and sent to  another facility that could better understand his problems. This is so unfortunate,  but the best interest of all the children must be taken into consideration. 3. Other  than the incident with Clarence, describe an incident in the book that you are  likely to remember for a long time to come and explain why you will remember it.  The way Mrs. Zajac invited Juana, the shy Puerto Rican girl, to her classroom  was a great inspiration to me. She did everything she knew possible to make the  child feel welcome and wanted. Teachers and adults, in general, have a  tendency to overlook the shy, quiet children in their classrooms. Those children  don't make noise, or trouble, so the teacher's attention is focused elsewhere on  another problem. However, Mrs. Zajac made sure she praised Juana every day,  no matter how small the task accomplished. Even though that child had to leave,  I know she left with a better self-concept due to the attention Mrs. Zajac  bestowed upon her. 4. What did you learn from the science fair that will impact  you as an educator? One of the most important factors of education that I have  learned this semester is to don't set kids up to fail. Unfortunately, that is exactly
