Back to school - leave no student behind

Sometimes seemingly small lessons enter our lives and change us forever. When I was a pre-service teacher, one of my professors showed a short film, “Cipher in the Snow.” The film depicts the story of a student of poverty who is neglected at school. He dies, and his teachers realize they don’t even know if he was in their classes. That film helped shape my goal of leaving no child behind.

The best teachers

Quality teachers are like master chess players. They see scenarios as they unfold in class, and they are capable of making quick adjustments to ensure students’ needs are met.
