Fostering Students
Mrs. Appleby has a student in her class that was recently taken from his parents. The student is very attached to her and makes comments about wishing he was her child and could go home with her. The school counselor asked if she would be willing to go through foster parent classes because of the attachment the child has to her. What do you think she should do?

She should do what every she is able to handle. The fact that the school counselor asked means it would not be agiasnt the rules by them. If she is concern aout the rule she could run it by the prinicpal. Also thing to consider is the welfare of the child? Is she able to handle a child at home and do her job at school? Can she afford a child in here life? I would say if her reelationship with the studnet is that good and can provide easily for the child then yes she can and even should do it.

It is always best for children to be placed with people they know and have a bond to than strangers in the foster care system. The child's case manager will be looking for family; but if no family were available than the teacher would be a great placement. It would be a huge commitment that must be thought through carefully.

If Mrs. Appleby feels as the student for her, she should do all the process and take the student under her wing. Comfort, is so important for students when learning, I will do whatever it takes to see this student succeed.

This is really up to the teacher and what she is comfortable with. I think it would be wonderful seeing s how attached the child is to her. But it all depends on how willing she is.

I believe it is up to the teacher if that is something she can do.

Well since the school counselor asked the teacher to foster the student it is not against the rules. This can only benefit the child due to their situation. Definitely foster the student. Every student deserves to be with those who they have a close genuine bond with in the situation where they've been taken away from their home and will obviously only thrive from being fostered by the right person.

Since the foster services will find there own parents for the child, the teacher might not need to worry about adopting a child. Taking foster parent classes, however, might help the teacher know and figure out different ways to react and handle situations with the child and their personal, academic and social life.
