Staying Connected Day 18 (04-29-2020)

Good morning Parents,

Remember when we had to work at learning?

Today, all students need to do is show up by opening up a computer, a tablet or a cell phone! A device that fits in the palm of your hand gives you access to the entire world!

I remember encyclopedias. I also remember libraries. And yes, I remember walking 1.9 miles to school and 1.9 miles back home each day - by myself. And if I was one minute late, my grandmother was waiting at the door - cane in hand. I'd better have a good explanation.

Interpret this as you will. But what I came away with from all of my childhood experiences, struggles and challenges was that if I wanted something I needed to work for it myself. No one was going to give it to me.

That's is what I try to teach those around me. Anything is possible. Anything is attainable. You just have to work at and for it.

Ms. Torres
