As much as I hate to admit it , I have been guilty of making assumptions about the ability of some students. I have always tried to have an open mind about people and tried not to have preconceived ideas, but I believe it is human nature to occasionally assume. One particular situation instantly comes to mind. Last year I had a student in one of my CNA classes who was a special needs student. I was unsure about how well she would do on the state certification test and was really quite concerned. I knew that the test was going to cost her over $100 bucks to take. I knew that it would be money that was hard to come by. She worked so hard and studied so hard for that test. By her own choice, she would even stay after school so that I could help her with some of her skills. After all was said and done, she did a fantastic job on her test!! The state evaluator even commented to me about how well she did on her skills portion of the test. Today she is a State Certified Nursing Assistant!
