Caitlin O'Grady Teacher 847-395-9977 firstname.lastname@example.org Notes What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me This statement reminds me of a quote by Benjamin Franklin, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn." We have to involve students for them to learn and discover their own paths and passions, and that's my goal, as an educator. I want to involve students in everyday activities, assignments, and instruction. With this involvement and encouragement hopefully each and every student will be able to discover who they want to be and what they want to become. A Teachable Moment When I think about a teachable moment, I think about the people and connections I have made with them. I've had many wonderful teachers and people in my life who have taught me more things then they will ever know. We are currently learning new things everyday from everyone around us, so don't ever pass up the opportunity to teach or learn something new!
