    • Dear Ariana and Alondra,
      I am very intrigued and interested in your post “Creating a Change in Foster Care Health”. This topic is not really touched upon or even brought up in any case at all. And I love that you guys have brought it out into the light. We never notice or I thin even pay attention how much children suffer from being in alternative family services at times. I also enjoyed how you were able to tie in your experience and view on being in alternative family services since you did go through process. There are question and doubts that do arise in me after reading this. “The requirement of a biological parent having to be present in medical emergencies needs to be changed. It’s possible that this policy was made with the intention to keep the kids close to their biological parents, but in reality some kids might not have a good relationship with them.” This quote specifically bring attentions and your reasoning of why there needs to be permission of having your biological parents there. One thing to consider or look at is answer the question: why are they notifying my biological parents and will it be beneficial in the end? You have to look at both sides. Yes, it could be traumatizing and scary for the child, but one could never actually know what is going on through a parent’s mind. Another thing I was going to bring up is how you use the word propaganda constantly in your research. Usually, propaganda is usually used in the knowledge that t is used to persuade or create a bias for people to believe. Is the “propaganda” used in this used to create a bias or is it to help bring awareness to the situation?
      Overall, I think you guys did a great job. I really like how you guys looked into this topic further and tried to collect as much information as possible. Keep up the great work!

    Dear Naveen,
    I am perplexed by your poem “Why Not?”, because I don’t understand what the poem was meant to be talking about. Something you could have done differently when publishing this poem was to give background information in the beginning about what the poem was supposed to be talking about. When you wrote ‘ “Fortnite” player Brendan Hic…Read More

  • I will keep your suggestions for next time. 🙂

    A few questions I have for you are..

    • What is a preservice teacher?
    • What do you do as a teacher to make sure your students that come from the foster system to feel safe and aren’t distracted by everything that is happening to them?

    Dear Hannah,

    Thank you so much for reading my poem. The part if your comment that stood out to me was when you put in a quote that reminded you of what I wrote- “ It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are” by Roy E. Disney. This stood out to me because I haven’t seen a comment that has included a quote that the comment…Read More

    Dear Roberto,

    I like your blog “OUSD School Meals”, because you talk about how it is important that people eat good food in school or they won’t be focused in their classwork. One sentence that stood out to me is when you wrote “Additionally, some students receive free lunch or reduced lunch, but still they would rather not eat than eat somethi…Read More
