Sharing a quarter century of teaching, the Smarter Teacher blog will focus upon the Three C's: Think Critically - Communicate Clearly - Work Collaboratively.
The Three C's of education are the most important skills necessary for teachers to develop in the students entrusted to their care.
"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn." - Alvin Toffler -
The best teachers are those that can take ideas, lessons, methodologies from other teachers, workshops, inservice and incorporate them into their own classroom in such a way that they become their own.
