    Teacher Message:Happy Face

    I beleive that it is critical to create real world connections in the classroom while producing a student-centered learning environment.  If students do not believe they will use classroom material in their future, they see lessons as insignificant, pointless and not worth their time. In order to achieve one’s objectives, a teacher must make the material relevant to their students.
