  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    I believe a person finds their passion through looking internally. For me, passion is a combination of: what we are good at, value, love to do, and find happiness in. As educators, if we fuel self-discovery in students, they will find their passion in life.

  • A Teachable Moment

    My youngest daughter has life-threatening food allergies. One evening, sitting at home, my oldest daughter told my husband and I that her younger sister shared with her that she was scared at school. Sitting at the allergy free table, she saw other children had allergens at the table she couldn't be around. My 7 year old, went to the lunchroom supervisor, and asked for help. She was told that there was nothing the supervisor could do about it. My own children gave me new understanding of what being an advocate for all of our children, and what teaching advocacy, really meant to me.
