A few Words of Comfort

We are all still coming to grip the horror of the shooting at the Newtown School on Friday but we cannot change what happened. What we can do now is to learn from it and plan (as schools) how we should prepare for such situations if they may occur. The Newtown teachers were exceptionally brave in the face of terror and I just hope that all of the survivors are given all of the counseling and support that they need to help them to cope and carry on with their lives.

The bravery of the heroic Newtown teachers is truly embodied in this quote: "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." –Martin Luther King, Jr.
Let's keep the families of all of the Newtown teachers and students in our prayers.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
