I recently read a quick read from CNNN regarding the importance of a good teacher on the success of a student. The premise did not surprise me at all. If you have been involved in the art of educating a child for long, you know that truth from experience.
The article I refer to was written by Wendy Kopp founder of Teach for America. In the article, Wendy emphasizes that technology needs to be of high quality and used for instruction. She also encourages its use in blending learning in order to enhance the skill learning of students; but she contends that the personal experience with an effective teacher is necessary for success. I like to think of it as the personal touch, the inspiration and push to greatness!
Enjoy the read and encourage yourself if you teach and give a pat on the back to all teachers you know. Of course the key is effective teachers – be the best you are called to be!!!
