Today’s educators face challenges unparalleled by previous generations of teachers. A typical classroom is comprised of students from diverse backgrounds, varying languages and unique backgrounds. In order for educators to meet the needs of the individual students within their classes, they must have a grasp on the challenges facing their students.   

Currently in education, the focus is on marginalised students and the impact their circumstances have on their ability to learn. This book is designed to make the various hardships encountered by many students more personal in order to give teachers insight into the very real needs of today’s students. Educators are familiar with the data regarding students; however, it is through the individual story of students that teachers are reminded of their vital role in nurturing and educating the students that fill their desks each year. 'Hear My Voice' will pair student narratives with brain research to provide valuable insights to K-12 educators and university professors.
