“Bless Your Heart”
But really, bless their heart…
Literally, stuck in the middle.
Students need more freedom than elementary school,
but more structural supports than high school.
Students respond best to teachers who
actively engage in learning
respect their students
acknowledge the need for relevant content
love what they do.
More like a stage for development.
It is not about a test score.
It is about
solving critical problems
becoming world shapers
developing awareness of strengths and weaknesses.
We have to remain relevant in what we do.
No matter the cost.
