Where Can You Find a Winning Team like this

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – Imagine this. Extensive training just for you is planned by a large group of professionals. The entire purpose of this training is to help you become successful in whatever career you choose.

These people are serious about creating challenges for every aspect of your interests and talents. They spend not only the hours of the day for which they are paid but stay late and constantly design even better training tools.

Dreams and Bones are what we’re made from

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – A folk singer and a song writer whose name you may or may not know of is David Mallet. Originally from Maine, he lived in Nashville for many years but returned to his home state in 1997. His signature theme is called “Garden Song” and contains the line, “We are made of dreams and bones.” Somehow this describes the human condition as only a poet can.

When educating a child, one has to always keep in mind the dual side of our existence on this planet. It’s not uncommon when you are working diligently on some concept to be interrupted by a kindergartener or first grader who claims dramatically that he is bleeding and be shown a pinprick at the end of a tiny finger. The intellect and physical life of a child are always interconnected.

Are Statistics a True Measure of Learning in Schools?

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – Let’s face it. School evaluations are ruled by statistics these days. Teachers are being evaluated by how well their students are doing on standardized tests. Student end of year grades are being influenced by their statistical performance on standardized tests because those measurements are now being averaged as a percentage of those grades.

Statistics is a branch of math that is involved with looking at numerical data and interpreting what those numbers mean.

Let’s put aside the statistical possibility that a child might have had a bad night the night before the test (like the police arriving to take a parent to jail, or a sibling who was sick and cried most of the night, or the child himself/herself being so nervous s/he was up all night throwing up!). «Read the rest of this article»
