Jack is five years old and in Kindergarten. Once Jack got so upset, he started screaming at his teacher. He thought she was unfair because she gave him juice in a shorter cup than that of his classmates. The teacher tried to explain to him that he got the same amount of juice as everyone else, but he believed he got less because his cup was shorter. Jack is also having a hard time in the class because his teacher 1) discourages him and the rest of the class from talking (to themselves) as they try to work grade level math problems and 2) she provides Jack and the rest of the class math problems that are too complicated for them and provides them no help to solve them.
Mary is 12 years old and attends XYZ Middle School. She lives with her parents and six other siblings. They currently live in the family van. The family has been struggling to get a home for the past three years with no luck. They have been living between motels and the van. Mary’s parents don’t work, and on most days, Mary and her siblings go to school without eating. Most, if not all, of Mary’s classmates, dislike her, and she’s never included in their games during recess. Moreover, Mary has a reputation for responding to the teacher before the teacher even finishes her questions. She also just tries to do the bare minimum academically and nothing more. Recently, Mary has spoken to her teacher about figuring out who she is and what she wants to do with her life in the future.
