What is your VISION? Do you have one? Have you thought about what your goals, your hopes, your dreams, and your plans look like? YOUR MIND is the very first place those hopes and dreams will start to come to life!
EDUCATION is not just about learning to read, write, and do math! NO WAY! It is SO MUCH MORE! Education is GAINING PERSPECTIVE! Developing IDEAS! Thinking about and FINDING SOLUTIONS and POSSIBILITIES!
That is what I love about reading, understanding, seeking, and applying information! It always leads to MORE IDEAS and the more ideas you collect, the more options are available to you in your FUTURE! ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES come with EDUCATION!
As an ELA instructor at Quest, I view my role as a Facilitator of the Future! Assisting my students in the process of discovering and understanding the world around them is a beautiful thing to be a part of!
Students of today do not learn like students of the past. They will not have the same expectations in their future. Students of the 21st Century have to be prepared to collaborate, explore, ask many questions, be comfortable with failing a few times (or more) in the process to find solutions to issues we haven’t even begun to tackle yet!
Gone are the days of do your homework, turn it in, get extra credit to get enough points for an “A”. TODAY requires a NEW KIND of student that is ready and prepared for the future. Today’s students will MOST DEFINITELY be the leaders of tomorrow: the doctors, the engineers, the developers, the teachers, the innovators, the collaborators, the finders of cures, the problem solvers…..therefore…..THEY NEED SKILLS and ABILITIES, not just a piece of paper with a grade!
I pride myself on providing a 21st Century classroom for my students here at Quest. The expectations and standards are high, but I make no excuse for them because OUR KIDS DESERVE THE BEST!
