Friday Thoughts: Learning Curves
I love coming to school every day because learning and growing is part of our culture. Each day I’m surrounded by 393 students who are learning new ideas and seeking ways to apply their new knowledge. And if a student begins to struggle, I see teachers there to help— often going above and beyond what’s expected in order to help that student succeed. And since “the dip” is a natural part of the learning process, having great teachers is a must!
Each day I’m also blessed to be around 52 adult learners who are constantly reading, researching, and seeking out new ideas and new information. Their dedication to learning and growing is an encouragement to me and our students. It’s encouraging for me to know that our teachers are constantly looking for ways to improve, learning about one more teaching strategy to put in their toolbox, or seeking out one more method that might help a struggling student.
The learning curve has certainly been steep for me this year, but I love that every day I’m surrounded by 445 people who are also learning and growing. It makes the learning process that much more fun for me! When we’re all learning and growing together, great things will happen.
