Quote of the Week

This week's quote was "The greatest teacher failure is" - Yoda

Thank you to Amelia from Ms. Bruno's class for this quote that she indicated "spoke to her."

Students spend time discussing this quote throughout the week. They discuss what they believe it means, why they believe the person said it. Finally they reflect on these questions and determine how they can apply it to their lives.
