What's your ideal school or classroom like?
My ideal school focuses on the needs of the whole child, with a well rounded curriculum and a project based learning approach. Character education is not just part of the curriculum but embedded in the school culture. Technology resources are plentiful, but the focus is on learning. Standardized tests are kept to a minimum and are just one of many tools used to evaluate students (and are not considered the most important one!).Teachers feel supported by administrators and are valued and appreciated by the community at large. Teachers are encouraged to build Personal Learning Networks with educators within their building and around the world.
