“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.” – George Bernard Shaw
We should let our kids explore their interests and provide them with challenges that embrace inquiry and self-directed learning. Who knows what understanding and knowledge students have that is just waiting to be unlocked. We must provide each student we teach with an environment, questions, challenges and tools that helps to foster and unlock what students can do and their passions, regardless of their age or skill level.
If we tell a child something cannot be done, it never will be done. But, if we give students support and encouragement, they can achieve marvellous things!
