Hello! I am offering a summer reading program for readers across grade levels that will increase fluency across genres and domains. Please contact me if you're interested.
The objective of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. -Robert Maynard Hutchins I love this quotation because it makes visible that the role of any teacher or tutor should be to create independent people who love learning! It is not the role of a teacher or tutor to make students believe that they cannot achieve without them.
"I am different, not less." Dr. Temple Grandin This quotation inspires me in so many ways. Dr. Grandin has worked to revolutionize the cattle/beef industry by designing humane corrals and chutes, amongst other achievements. Dr. Grandin is also autistic. She credits much of her academic and social successes to a few teachers and family members who saw potential in her, AND who created high quality opportunities for learning for her. Dr. Grandin has taught me that it is not enough to "see" potential in all people, but that accessible and high quality opportunities for learning must be created for all students.
