Why School?

     What is the purpose of school?   

  • To educate children
  • to prepare children for their role in society
  • to model society, with a culture, rules, interactions, expectations
  • to support children in becoming able to positively contribute
  • a place that supports learning   
  • a place where connections are made (post-reading thought)

What do I want for the children in my care?

  • I want them to make a difference
  • I want them to enjoy coming to class
  • I want them to be excited about learning
  • I want them to care for one another
  • I want them to know success at something

 

Post-reading additions that resonate 

  • I want them to know they are valued
  • I want them to find themselves, to find their strengths, weaknesses, to find their place
  • I want them to be conscious, to be active (not passive)
