What do you want to do?

32/365The basic goal of education has not changed,  we are preparing students for life-long learning and success in a changing society. The tools and instructional methods used to achieve these goals have advanced dramatically.

Technology is changing the way we live and work since has the power to enhance the teaching and learning process. By stimulating creativity and self-discovery, technology is providing new ways for teachers and students to communicate, collaborate, and create.

I want to develop, support, and encourage creative and critical thinking skills in students using art, music, books, games, drama, technology, and whatever is needed to accomplish that goal. 

When you think critically about something, you have to step outside the box and look at the situation from many perspectives while realizing the impact those could have on your interpretation. When you thinking creatively about something, you also have to step away from the box to look at the situation and identify possibilities, even the ones that may not be apparent to everyone.
