"A teacher named Rich Lehrer taught me that the connection with kids is the first and only thing that's important" (Newcomb, 2013).
This quote is completely accurate and should be posted in universities and schools across the world. Educators can not teach effectively, if they do not know the interests of their students, triggers to behavior issues, family dynamics, etc.

I enjoyed this blog because it brought to light the importance of the children in the schools. For so long, the focus has been standards and skill sets. I understand the importance of data driven instruction and partake daily in data driven instruction, but the magic of student innovation has been taken away due to the pressures of standards. This blog has refreshed my desire to return to community learning projects that are driven by student interests. I appreciate a school, such as ASB, which has taken action in forward thinking programs that are centered around the students.

I appreciate Newcomb's quote about the new responsibilities of teacher as listener, network-builder, connection-maker, and passion encourager. I love to talk by nature. I love story-telling, explaining, sharing, etc. I think this new definition of "teacher" as facilitator is so crucial, it is refreshing to see that some schools are actually getting beyond talking about these dramatic changes and actually living it out in their classrooms. Well done ASB!
