What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me
Igniting Passion and Discovery in every student means that my job as an educator is to challenge every student to be intellectually curious while uncovering what it is that makes them inspired.
A Teachable Moment
Even though I have been teaching for many years, and still remain so young, my students continue to teach me new things. During presentations this year, a student commented how she felt alone and unworthy of having friends. I was shocked and saddened that this talented, brilliant, and thoughtful student could feel this way. This moment reminded me how isolated some students feel and that the social-emotional well-being of our students is just as important to be taught as academics.
