You don’t have to read many blog posts here to know what I am passionate about. Bottom line: I want my classroom to be one of the most exciting places a child ever visits. Better than Disney World, as cool as flying to the moon, and most of all? When they leave my classroom, I want them to remember our time together and take part of it with them. Everyday is about building connections. Every moment counts. As WB Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” Light it. I want every child to have the best life possible.
