～Nelson Mandela ～ ＂No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion . People must learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
I said to someone I know, "I don't know why this hurts so much". And she said, "it hurts because it matters". And that was a huge thing for me to realize. That there are things in life that hurt. And they hurt because they are important.
Lifelong Learners - I must give students the skills so that they can continue learning even after they leave me. Examples - communication skills, primary document analysis, presentation skills, working well in collaborative groups, etc.
