SOLC Post 23 of 31- Teacher Goals

Today I was out of the classroom for a training and I took away a lot of valuable information!

One thing that stuck out to me was learning about an influential person in education named Marva Collins. She started her own school, and was able to lead her students to success with her consistent and influential teaching methods. The two quotes that had the most impact were discussing how she spoke to her students:

“You are here ┬áto win; you were born to win, and if I have to care more about you than you care about you, then that’s the way it will be.”

“Welcome to success and say goodbye to failure because you are not going to fail. I’m not going to let you fail.”

Wouldn’t education be wonderful if all teachers would motivate their students the way Marva encouraged hers? So inspiring!
