Education is important no matter what your age is. When we think of education, we tend to think of early elementary or college education. There is so much more to it than that.
The education we receive in school is important but it’s not the only type of education there is. We should strive to learn something new every single day. That’s how we keep our minds fresh and continue to grow as a community.
I feel it’s important to instill learning in children from a young age. This can be accomplished by letting them know that their school work is very important. They should treat school work like we treat our jobs. Instilling the love of books is another way. We can read for fun or to learn about a topic we are interested in. Studies show that if children see their parents reading, they will also love to read. There are tons of books in my home.
Sometimes continuing our education after high school means going on to college. College is not always an option for everyone because of the cost. There are ways to pay for college such as scholarships and grants. If you don’t go to college that’s ok too. College is not for everyone.
Education is a hot topic these days.
Some do not feel the quality of education our youth is getting in school is enough. There are many behavior problems in schools. I know the district I live in has had many issues with behavior, crime etc. They are trying to clean up the schools and make changes. One very important aspect is to have teachers and education administrators actually show full concern for the students.
If students feel they are connecting with their educators on an emotional level, they will do better and behave better. We hear all the time about the problems in schools and educators that act inappropriately towards students. What we don’t hear about are the teachers and educators that go above and beyond in a positive way.
To go into education at any level you have to have a love for teaching, a love for children, and above all patience! It’s hard work but also rewarding work. I’ve worked with children in different ways in the past from being a nanny to attending a childcare course in high school that had me intern at different daycares just to name a few.
It takes a special kind of person to devote their career to helping children. For example, Ronnie Brown Mansfield is such a person. He is an Ohio native who enjoys being around people and helping children reach their highest possible potential. He started his career as a teacher in a classroom and now is the assistant principal at a middle school in Mansfield.
I have not had the best experiences in school for various reasons. I’m now in my 40’s and there are still teachers and principals however that have a special place in my heart and they always will. They have gone above and beyond to help me when I was struggling.
How do you a special teacher from your childhood you remember? I’d love to hear that story.
