I work in an environment that allows me to create a great learning platform for my students.
I wasn’t able to get what my society defined as a “good grade” when I left high school. High school was confusing and I spent most of my time finding myself and trying to fit in. I kept asking, what was wrong with me? How can I fit in? As opposed to just belonging as myself. I want my students to feel like when they come to school, they basically just went to one of the most exciting places they could visit. I want them to enjoy, learn and discover who they are so they can become better versions of themselves without being worried about having to change to belong or fit in.
I want them to enjoy learning like they love playing video games, football or watching a great movie. I want them to look forward to the next lesson like they would the next episode of a great TV series.
I’m not there yet. But I’m trying. I’m doing my best to ensure they are the best versions of themselves, regardless of their religion, tribe, gender, culture, race and even grade And with this let adventure continue.
