This time in student's lives are critical and the connections and relationships that forged at this time shape a person for the future. It is up to us as adults to help all students reach out and try new ideas or ways to learn in order for our students to reach their fullest potential. A Teachable Moment During my time in school, I struggled and was awkward. I was the student who was quiet, worked hard for average grades, and never quite understood math. My fifth grade teacher took me under her wing and I never forgot her kindness and support. She taught me to always keep trying no matter the obstacle and connections matter.
