Fixing the leak: my why

Standard

I teach to help fix or prevent leaks in the educational pipeline; to make sure students do not feel lost and disconnected; to make sure they know at least one person who cares about and believes in them as others did for me. I teach to find innovative ways to solve complex problems.  I teach to fill gaps in student knowledge to prepare them for success in this multicultural, ever-changing world.  I teach to leverage technology to facilitate a collaborative learning process so that knowledge can be created and not just consumed.  I teach to educate students and future educational leaders about the inadequacies of the educational system, and societal injustices and to empower them with the knowledge to affect change.
