What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student” Means to Me
To "ignite passion and discovery in every student" is a lofty challenge. This powerful statement encourages all community members to be highly invested in the education of every student. As the educators, we try every day to meet the needs of all of our students and continue to try to create opportunities for each student to prove their content mastery and cultivate curiosity.
A Teachable Moment
I love teaching and I think the parallels between teaching and coaching are amazing. When I was in high school my basketball coach was very particular about how to warm up. She always taught us to do the fundamentals right before moving on. I always tried to mimic this in the classroom while encouraging every student to try new things and find what they are passionate about.
