“A child is not a letter or a number. They are a person who will grow up and inherit the world. Who do we want them to be? What do we want the world to look like? We must fight to protect the space of childhood, the person before the number, the curious inquisitive creative learner, the community member, the little guy shooting spider-man web hands at you when you are lining up at recess.” Kristi Mraz http://kinderconfidential.wordpress.com/2014/04/29/184/
I think we can all agree with this. Childhood is sacred, and we are it’s guardians. Let us teach, let students learn and grow.
