April 2011 Monthly Ed Tip!

 

This video is a tribute to the Born This Way Foundation established by Cynthia Germanotta, Lady Gaga’s mother, for people who believe that dynamic diversity is inherent in the human condition, and are against bullying and discrimination of all types worldwide, particularly in our schools.

In her song Born This Way, Lady Gaga address students with learning differences when she sings, “…Whether life’s disabilities/ left you outcast, bullied or teased,/ rejoice and love yourself today/ ‘cause baby, you were born this way.”

Let all administrators and teachers be mindful of how their daily interactions with students affect the mindsets of all children, particularly those child who might find education challenging.
