This August, I began my 19th year as a public school educator in the field of American history and government. The message I convey to my students each year is that they can make an impact in the world that they live in. When they enter my classroom, they see the following statements on my back wall: Use Your Voice, Take A Stand, Make A Difference.

Teaching Chinese can be forced or presented in an unnatural way. We found a method of teaching behaviors, building upon a child’s natural curiosity, using hands on materials, teaching through multiple senses, and other fantastic philosophies in a pedagogy called Montessori.

I’m a firm believer in accountability. I don’t believe Arizona’s K-12 education accountability plan is tough enough. Yes, we require all our public-school students to take the statewide assessment. Students must pass AIMS to get into fourth grade and graduate from high school. However, students and schools are only accountable for math and reading. Furthermore, once-a-year “bubble-in” exams are incapable of measuring whether students can apply skills in “real world” situations. We do give third- through 10th-graders writing exams, but experts don’t evaluate them. Pearson, the London-based testing company Arizona hired, advertises for $12 an-hour temporary workers to score tests (bachelor’s required). Results take several months. By then students aren’t even in the same classroom.
