Chris Snyder Teacher 847-395-9416 firstname.lastname@example.org Notes What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me Passion and discovery is what education, and life, is all about. Students who have a passion for a topic are driven to find out as much as they can about that topic and that is when discovery takes place. The exciting part is when students can carry that passion to other areas of their lives and discover things that open up new doors and horizons for them. This is when growth occurs and students start making their mark on society, this is what it is all about! A Teachable Moment Over the past few years, I have worked to develop a new Mobile Apps Course in District 117. This required me learning how to program and develop apps as I have never done this before. This experience really helped me re-connect with the learning process and helped me appreciate the work and effort that our students put in on a daily basis.
