I believe that all students can learn and achieve and that while mistakes are part of learning, one should not be discouraged and give up; it is too easy to give up and just "get by" with the group. That is not the point of education; education is to develop you, the individual and recognize your own unique traits and abilities. It is as much about
who you are as what you are and you must strive to be better.

I am an experienced permanently licensed teacher with over twenty years of experience in the New York City schools, and I read, write and speak Spanish. I focus on reading (literacy) skills, for many times, development is hindered by a limited vocabulary and exposure to different points of view on the same topic (critical thinking. Yes, computers and webpages can augment and promote student engagement but they are a support tool, not a crutch or substitution for "the confusion of learning" (Vigotsky, Constructivist educator).
