As I begin my 20th year of teaching, I can’t help but think back on that first day of teaching and wishing I had known then what I know now. I would celebrate more the small steps as well as the big victories. I would set higher expectations and guide my students as they strive to meet their goals. My goal is for them to take ownership of their own learning, engage in the process, and return home every day having experienced some form of success. I, too, am a LEARNER. A quote by Malala Yousafzai inspires me to keep hope, “One child, one teacher, one pen, and one book can change the world”
