After everything that has happened
As I sit in my office counting down the minutes until the end of day bell rings, I began to think about a few things. The first one was what I was going to have for dinner but after I got over that craving, I asked myself two questions.
Earlier this week I was observing a classroom and the students had just completed a quiz. After seeing a table that had finished up, I sat down with them to see how they felt they did on the test. We as educators do not always get time to have a candid conversation with our students. So I jumped at the chance to find out what they thought. This was a classroom I do not normally spend a lot of time in and the students have had very little interaction with me thus far.
ITC was started in 2014 with the intention of providing students in the Memphis community a chance to see what else the world has to offer. I started it after working in an inner city school that only made the news when negative things happened in the community.
