From Teaching Students Who
Are Classified as "OHTERS"

"We as educators are probably not aware that we sometimes, in the attempt to make some of our students feel accepted, try too hard. That student or those students may get the feeling that they are viewed differently...

Before we start examining ourselves, let us look at some research that seems to suggest that even those who helped to prepare us for our careers in education may have had prejudices of which they were not aware. Webster's Dictionary defines prejudice as "a preconceived opinion, usually unfavorable" or "an unjustified and unreasonable bias." Prejudice is not race or gender specific, it can infiltrate anywhere and anyone. We all have some form of prejudice and the potential to pass it on. For this reason, as educators molding the most precious clay in the universe, we must look constantly in the mirror at "self" in an attempt to be equipped to offer the very best unbiased education to all students."
