The end of the school year is here! There are about ten days left for most schools in the Philadelphia area. This time of year brings excitement, as well as discontentment. What a joy it brings to teachers to see the students that they've poured into since September, or maybe even longer, master certain skills that were taught. Seeing students go from one level to the next is exciting! However, most students will lose what was taught if they do not continue building on those skills. It is imperative for students to continue the ladder of academic success that constant academic enrichment. There is so much information out here that can improve students' skills. Take for instance, workbooks, computer printables, academic computer activities, or simply a one on one tutor. There is an old adage that says, "What you put in, is what will come out." Let's help our children feed their mind with information that will help them for life.
"Teachers make all other professions possible." This slogan is imprinted on a T-shirt which was given to me as a gift. People from all walks of life and professions have something in common. Somewhere along the line, they were taught basic reading and math skills.
My goal is to create life long learners who are in charge of their own learning. I believe in propelling others into their destiny. Teaching and learning are intertwined. Teaching and learning are ongoing. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn and become great men and woman. An old adage says, "People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care." I believe that it is a privilege to have learners entrusted in my care. Therefore, it is my responsibility to ensure that I capture every learner's attention by tapping into their needs, interests, and learning styles for the short time they are lent to me. I am committed to investing in the lives of others.
