We must become the change we wish to create.” Gandhi

“When it comes to the future, there are those who let it happen, those who make it happen, & those who wonder what happened.”

Years ago in social gatherings when I was asked what I did and I responded that I was a teacher people would just walk away.  However, when I said that I was a writer they wanted to know what I wrote.  I feel society has to appreciate teachers and all of the hard work that they do.

Teachers today have so many pressures on them especially the standardized test that their hands are tied and cannot teach what our children really need to learn.  I always wanted my students to be able to leave my classroom and be able to function in the real world.  I wanted them to be aware of what was going on in their city, state and country, be  wise consumers, know the law and  how to obtain and succeed on a job.

Teachers should be involved in any talk of educational reform.  They are on the front lines and change will take place in their classrooms.  We also have to listen to the students and parents.

If children cannot learn
the way we teach,
we must teach
the way children learn.
