Angelee talks about how the teacher cradles them too much (1:25)

My other teacher that I went to over there, he was pretty good.  He’s – well because he found that Indigenous students was rare on the mainstream level so he really supported us and he felt that supporting us would help us to go there more but just with other students there, I noticed they just sort of – if they’re not comfortable in that class, they’ll let them go back and then they won’t encourage them to move out or branch out, which I feel – well to me like sometimes the teachers cradle them too much and they sort of – it sort of cuts their legs out from under them.  Because I found when I was in mainstream, my teacher sort of became like that. He sort of cradled me a bit too much, and then I was finding it hard because when I was going out to do things on my own, I wanted, like I wanted his support and I wanted him to help me but like, inside like I felt, oh I should be doing this myself, instead of just leaning back this way all the time.  They should – how should I say it? – like get students to do something but offer them support but not too much because they just become dependent too much on that person.  That’s how pretty much I felt for my teacher.
