Fellow educators, I have a simple question for you…
And after I ask it, you might pause to consider your answer(s). You might also pause to predict what other educators might say. And you might take a moment to consider why they chose that particular answer.
Are you ready?
Which year do you think is the most important year of a child’s school life?
What’s your answer? Why?
What do think Elementary teachers might say? Secondary?
How about Math teachers? FACS teachers?
How might an Art teacher respond? A Counselor? A Principal?
So what do you think? What’s the most important year of a child’s life?
Because from one educator to another, I think a pretty good answer is, “the year s/he is in my classroom.”
That’s the most important year. So what are you doing about this year?
