Laylee has had 2 classroom teachers and several subject specialists since beginning school 2 years ago. We have enjoyed them all. They are energetic, kind, talented educators and I think she’d move in with several of them if given the choice of staying at our house or going home with them. The quality of these teachers however does not keep us from wanting more for her education.
I had breakfast yesterday morning at the Pacific Science Center listening to Jeff Raikes, the CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation talking about the importance of quality STEM education (Science Technology Engineering and Math). Wheels are turning. People with passion, knowledge and resources are working to improve things for the kids of the future. But what can we do right now?
