Potential

Edutopia Article

Saw this article on Twitter and loved the points it makes!

My favorite part is where it says all people have innate potential.  To me it rings true when you think about setting your expectations.  If all of my students have this potential then why not tap into it by setting your expectations high!  They can and most will strive for those expectations!

What do you think of the article?  What was your favorite part?

July 19 – What holiday do you enjoy celebrating with students?:  Well – I am THAT teacher that wears too many holiday paraphernalia…haha!

My favorite holiday to celebrate with them is probably Halloween.  It is just so much fun and silly!  I love participating!

My second favorite is Ash Wednesday (not a ‘holiday’, but a Holy Day int he Catholic Church.  I say this because I always go to mass before school starts and then ALL day long I get comments about the dirt on my forehead.  I love giving my students some time so that I can explain what it is, but also weird that they did not know what it is.
