All good things must come to an end. My student teacher has left me to go back to CSU to graduate. She will become a superb teacher in her time and I am proud that I had the opportunity to help her learn. I am a better teacher because of my time with her.
Good luck Caitlin. You’ve touched many lives during the last four months and will touch many more in your career.
The speaker, when asked about why they implemented a one-to-one laptop program simply answered, “We wanted to be the best high school in the nation.” That’s an impressive attitude. During a conversation with a colleague, this came up again. Why is it that so many of us become complacent in our classrooms? As I look at education I think beyond my classroom. I want my students to be members of a global community. What happens in my class is of little consequence in the overall picture, not that it’s not important, but I think that there is more to education that what happens in individual classrooms.
