Community, support, and effectiveness!

Although you may not dwell in that community, the community in which you have in your classroom impacts the nation as a whole. What does this mean? This means that the fortitude that you share with your children is that fortitude that's going to make them successful. So when you are in front of them, you are teaching them how to persevere, how to navigate uncertainty and how to be successful at solving problems and also how to celebrate those problems. So what do you need to do?

Think about teaching while impacting a community, differentiating approaches to learning, and effectively supporting all students. #students #all

And the ability to imbue in a child a sense of of citizenship and place in the world where critical thinking is the driver for all their decision making as they move out to life. But to give them those skills, to help them realize that there's a context for everything they're learning. I think that's really a challenge and a very important aspect to good teaching is to say, this particular class on math is going to help you in XYZ down the road

This year, one of my special children got into one of the top schools in the nation. And not only did she get into the top school of the nation, but I also mentored her mother. And her mother is absolutely divine. She is allowing her to explore her creative side. She's allowing her to explore her debate side. She's also allowing her to give experience to people. And also she helps her younger sister by tutoring her

You start the Swell, then you ask five questions, and you send that package to somebody, and they get it, and they hear all the questions and they understand completely what the intention is, and they go back and reply. As a work assignment, I feel like I would love to see this happen, even if it's two or three kids that are just in the student council who are looking to make some changes within the school
