Deep Thoughts from the Principal...

Here is a quote from the book I am currently reading called Start Where you are, but Don't Stay There:


"Educators from any racial background can be successful with any group of students when edcuators have (or are willing to garner) the knowledge, attitude, dispositions, and skills necessary to understand and be responsive to their students' social, instructional, and curriculum needs. In other words, it is what teachers know and are willing to learn that matter more than their racial background."


How are we, as a staff, learning about out students' social, instructional and curriculum needs? What are we doing with that information to improve instruction and deepen our impact?


I would love to discuss this thought with you this week's Thought Catcher Thursday at 7:30 in the library.
