"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire" - William Butler Yeats
Each child is a unique, competent learner fueled by creativity and curiosity. As a teacher it is important to facilitate exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing, and hearing. Therefore, I create lessons that take the student beyond the classroom to experience the out-doors. I believe that it is valuable to assist students in developing an appreciation for the natural world around them.
Christmas is around the corner and looking for a theme for our tree, I came across an article of inspiration. Crisp apple green paired with metallics to create a subtle, trendy look. Just one of my favs that I thought I'd share.
