This could not be truer, yet this is what the shift in education has come to. Instead of teaching for the future, more and more of teaching is to help students pass a test. Is there a balance? I believe yes.
The following two tabs change content below.
Patty Benton is a 4th grade teacher located in Colorado. Her passion is helping every student recognize there are no glass ceilings. They are all capable of reaching for new goals, and obtaining them. Patty was raised in Iowa, but now lives in Colorado with her three beautiful children and one crazy, crazy dog named Izzy and a sweet gentle dog named Ginger. She loves having the mountains “right there” for adventuring, but also enjoys being in a major metropolitan area. As a family (minus Ginger & Izzy, of course!), they volunteer at a local food bank and Patty was the ministry leader for a Single Parent’s Ministry.
