Celebratory Best Practice
My job is to help prepare students for academic assessments and challenges just like an athlete prepares for a game or a musician prepares for a concert. Class is like practice time where the students learn new skills and practice existing skills repeatedly so they feel confident and can perform to the best of their ability. My hope is that the practices of preparation and a belief in themselves will translate to all aspects of their life.
