“Education does not make us educable. It is our awareness of being unfinished that makes us educable.” ~Paulo Freire

We can think of many specific behaviors and habits that will make our children succeed in their elementary careers, but what we essentially want is to create life-long learners. As a teacher, this is what I strive to do every year. I aim to inspire a class-full of students who respect the ideas of others in the learning community we’ve built, students who are confident in their own abilities to learn and teach others, students who set goals for continuously improving themselves in all areas. 
Learning in Room 23 will sometimes be easy, sometimes hard, often times fun, and always rewarding.
