I am a teacher of my students heart first and their mind second. Their grades and test scores come a distant third and fourth.
I believe that if students can be challenged to do great things for others and can show kindness and compassion to their fellow human beings, this classroom, this school, this community and this world can be a much better place.
My school, Spring Lake Intermediate and Middle Schools, will be involved in a program that fits directly with the passion I have in my heart this month called Rachel’s Challenge. Students will see a presentation September 24 about sharing kindness and compassion with one another and, in turn, changing the way people treat one another and feel about themselves all at once.
This is a plea for you to join us the evening of September 24th, 6:30 PM at Spring Lake High School auditorium for an evening that will change your life!
Below you will find a “teaser” video of what the program can do for our students and community. More information can also be found at the website link below the video.
