Today we’re joined by Chiayim Burney, youth pastor for Rock City Church in Columbus, OH, and former 4th grade elementary educator. I (Chris) invited Chiayim to share his message which he originally broadcasted to our school. He has dedicated his life to ensuring all students are equally valued and that we don’t give up or label anyone before entering our classrooms.
In our conversation, Chiayim and I discuss:
How Chiayim became involved with this work.
How we should handle students who struggle at school?
What can we do to get involved with struggling students and their families, even when contact isn’t easy?
What focus can we take in our classrooms to ensure that all learners are successful?
