Lourdes Viloria: The Human Side of Teaching

I can say that I honestly didn’t have. I retained all my teachers based on the fact that I treated them as as individuals like. If you given the time for the school and if you need to go to an appointment, you can go, that’s fine. I work with you and that’s important, you know, to to look at the human side of teaching. Look at that because teachers, if you really do the math, they don’t get paid a lot in the work that they do is so it’s so giving is so challenging. So we know we need to work together and build a family. Another thing we did because of my sister, she is a dental director at a community clinic, so I could start that over again. I’m sorry. OK, so go see my sister. OK, well, my sister, because of my sister. What we also did at the school we we assessed was the dental director for the local community clinic. It’s a nonprofit clinic and what we did is that again, through a grant through the UTHealth Duty Health Sciences them, I was able to have free dental care for pre-K from pre-K through third grade. So the then the dentist would come. And then of course, you had the the I think they call them interns are those studies that are practicing right, but they still provided those the dental, cleaning, the dental, you know, just oral examinations. And then they would come back or refer them to the clinic and do the dental work. And that was very successful because, you know, it was a free service and it was really great to see that, you know?

And again, that’s because you have to look at the Maslow Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, right? You need to make sure the students are healthy, well-fed and they they have a very good social, emotional disposition to learn. And that’s what we really focused on. You know, looking at the holistic child looking at, you know, what can we do for the family and so that their child is happy, the family is happy, the teachers are going to have a student that is ready to learn. And so that’s the same idea, you know, the bridging of ideas that we’re bringing over through. I know now we’re involved at MSU in branch it, which is basically those are the fundamental core ideas of working with teacher candidates so they can see the child, see the holistic child and eliminate any, you know, I guess, you know , deficits that they might have about a child coming to school and lacking in teaching and teaching the whole child at that school.
