Prosperous Teaching Prosperous Learning is the beginning of an educational shift. This shift is about educators actively embarking on a journey that allows them to discover their power in fostering genuine individuality in the children that we teach. Now is the time to embrace this paradigm shift that will be the inspiration of teaching for all of our children for years to come. It is time for us to be the heroes of the 21st century…Let us take back our power as educators and show the world that we know what is best for our children!
“Prosperous Thought: " Prosperous teaching is about making every student feel important regardless of his or her circumstance. A prosperous teacher inspires students and teaches them to know that they are worthwhile. Prosperous teaching helps students to discover who they are and what their role may be in society and life." “Prosperous Thought: "Always keep in your thoughts that each and every student that we teach has a role in our society. We need t guide and assist them to learn what their individual qualities are and how they fit in the culture in which we live." “Prosperous Thought: The children that we teach have needs, socially and academically, that are more complex than children in the past. We as educators have not adjusted effectively to meet these needs. We continue to try to mold them into a system that is outdated and ineffective. Let us now begin to discuss what our children need and how we can utilize their strengths to better our society in a way that supports and encourages uniqueness. Let us be open to make changes that will positively impact the students and our educational institutions.” Great Inspirations! Andrew S. Palumbo
