Teachers and Tech Program

I think it’s safe to say that Ethan is not looking forward to summer to his summer vacation. This year has been so much easier on him and his love for learning seems to come easy. I mean, for the most part, he comes home from school and reminds me that he needs to do his homework.

My favorite part about it all is that he has over achieved in all areas and has scored 100% on almost all of his tests. How sweet is that!

Whether at a private school or public school, I always want my kids to do their best in every subject. Sure, some subjects may be liked more than others. Just as long as I see they are putting in 100% of the effort, I’m okay with that.

I’m sad to say that Millie’s last year of “homeschool” is coming to an end. We gave her the option of heading to kindergarten at her brother’s school next year and, of course, she’s all in.

For the most part, I think I’m going to miss the schedule part of teaching my kids at home and finding new, creative ways to learn different things. My heart is so at ease with the decision, though. Getting to know Ethan’s kindergarten teachers over the last year, I am comfortable because I know they truly care about their students. I’m also put at ease knowing there are companies out there that support Arizona education, like CenturyLink – who has long supported education and the technology that fuels learning by supporting several education initiatives in Arizona communities.

With all the talk of #RedforEd and how teachers are not getting enough funding for their students, it was so cool to hear that, this May, CenturyLink will be providing grants worth more than $124,000 to 27 teachers across Arizona in support of enhancing the innovative use of technology in their classrooms. We, definitely, need more companies to support our teachers and the future of our children.
