As a teacher, I love August. Each fall I get a “do-over.” When school begins, all is possible. Every child in my room will learn, every child will love going to school every day, and every child in the school will feel successful, competent, and as if she or he belongs to a serious and elevated enterprise.
I chose this photo as my first picture because it shows a first grader teaching a middle school teacher how to use a robot the first grader designed. We are all teachers, and we are all learners.
