"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” - Dr. Seuss

Why do teachers teach? We love working with children, but all children are not the same and that is what makes it great.

Everyone remembers a great teacher but what does it mean to be great?

What matters most in making a school successful - more than class size or curriculum - is excellent teaching. Children remember the teachers that make a difference in their lives; the ones who care enough to spend the time and find a way to engage each and every child, the ones who offer kindness, empathy, care and concern. They’ll remember the teachers that took the time to listen and those that asked them how they ...
