QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
A Teachable Moment?
May 19, 2014
Don’t praise your furnace when the house is cold.
As we draw this week to a close, the spring 2014 semester invites us to look back upon a few moments with some reflections about teachable moments for ourselves and our students.
Whether it is through our teaching, learning, or service to students, they invite us to learn from them as they learn from us. The moment engages our mind set to reflect upon Student Success as it creates new opportunities for us in the coming future. This is to continue an effort to see the continuous improvement model as a way to think in an innovative way with regard to access, engagement, retention, persistence, and completion.
In preparation for the fall 2014 semester, the New Student Success Act Brochure and AB 2558 Professional Development, invites us to have an inclusive conversation and collegial dialogue among our campus professionals. There is no instruction to offer. What I can offer, in this moment, is my reverence, my glad astonishment at our good fortune, my upward gaze, and wordless watching. I am excited about our future.
