Reply To: Forgotten instruments – Beg. band
If a student forgets instruments regularly there could be an underline condition being ignored and punished. This was me all through middle and high school. I just learned in college I have a disability causing short term memory issues. I’ve been punished for something I had little control over for my entire life, just things to consider with students. Even in college I have issues remembering small things such as music, reeds, seat or neck straps, I have openly discuss these issues with my teachers and am registered with the school for these issues. I can’t control these things, maybe students who have this issue are like me. Just something to take into consideration, teachers ignoring clear signs of learning disabilities made school difficult for me and has made college even more difficult.
This is the whole reason I want to go into the education field, to help students with clear issues being ignored and punished for something they can’t control and need help with.
