As our global community continues to debate solutions to climate change and limited resources, we know with certainty that we are preparing our children for an unknown future.  Preparing children for the world ahead of them is a challenge all parents and educators face. Helping our children learn HOW to think instead of knowing WHAT to think is the key to their success and confidence as they navigate life experiences. Teaching them to look at problems creatively through different lenses encourages unique and sometimes wild solutions. The possibilities are endless, if we expose our children to diverse approaches toward learning. One approach is STEAM.

When I was young, reading was not my favorite subject in school. I read because my teachers told me to or if I had to do a book report. Throughout my academic years, reading felt like a chore. After many years, I discovered my preferred genre and I ENJOY it immensely. As an educator and parent, I understand the importance of helping children find the joys of reading at a very early age.

What happens when teachers encourage students to step out of their comfort zone? The answer is that our students will grow into people who reflect on their failures and learn how to succeed on future opportunities. Teachers at American International School are providing students the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone to prepare them for life outside of school. Our goal is to teach children to be confident, well-spoken individuals who welcome challenges. This is our very first episode of AIS Voices and I am extremely excited to share it with you! So, take a seat and enjoy the show!
