Let your students honor be as dear to you as your own – an exploration of how we relate to and understand the youngest members of our community and help them learn to become the A+ human beings we hope them to be. We’ll explore community responsibility, pedagogy vs. andragogy, the power and importance of our speech in disseminating our values, and how “from our students, we learn the most”. While the focus may be on our children, these values are applicable to all, across all aspects of life.
