I am still reflecting on the comment from TEDtalk with Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability.
CHILDREN: They are hardwired for struggle when they get here. Our job is not to say they are perfect. . Our job is to say, you’re imperfect and wired for struggle but worthy of love and belonging (paraphrased).
Effectively teaching the digital generation, or screenagers, seems to involve two basics: embracing the tools that kids are immersed in and using these tools to engage students in core curriculum topics.
This is a great read for all educators.
We appreciate how dedicated and involved the parents are at WGMS! What a great team and partnership we have to support our students and community! Have a great February and remember to pick up a book and READ! Reading is a great activity to do on a SNOW DAY!
