Thoughts on education from the 2017 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year. Let's build an public education system that ensures every student has a great education and equal opportunity to be happy and successful in life.
Yesterday our fifth grade students made cold salads, deserts, and rolled cold cuts for a deli platter in preparation for today's Volunteer Appreciation Lunch. As I was in the school kitchen showing a few of our fifth grade students how to safely use a knife to chop celery and other ingredients for a pasta salad, one of our maintenance guys walked past. He asked me, "Is there anything your job doesn't include?"
I answered, "Nope. I'm a Teacher."
Because if there's something one of my students wants to learn, I'm always going to be there to help them learn it.
