Dear Educators, Thank you!

Hi there! My name is Kate, and I am a recent college graduate, now working my dream job as Project Manager here at Virtual Village Classroom. Today, I wanted to write a special letter to the educators out there who made a difference in my life, and make a difference in the lives of students everywhere. The greatest benefit of serving as a teacher is the fact that you have the potential to save a child’s life. You may not know his or her background. You won’t always understand why a little boy clings to your dress or a little girl tugs your hair and shoots spit balls at you, but intuition tells us these children crave attention.

While teaching can frustrate, it inspires young people to grow into valuable counterparts in society. How many of you can look back on your first student (all grown up) that came to visit you and thanked you for bringing them up right? Isn’t that rewarding? They say it takes a village to raise a child. Here at Virtual Village Classroom, we support that mentality and focus on writing literacy across grades K-8. We provide a 36-week writing resource, called Weekly Writer, that improves students’ reading and writing comprehension across all subjects. I’m not here to sell you on that, though. I’m here to remind you that you are the first person who has a chance to influence students’ learning ability and ultimately improve their opportunities. Our CEO, Darren Butler, just wrote a blog recently entitled, “The REAL Problem with Student Writing.” This blog informs teachers that the reason students can seem successful, but only brush the surface of true literacy, is because of their ability to skim and scan material.

I am guilty of this sin. I remember constant struggles in timed writing, standardized assessments, and especially STEM education. Because I could never understand math and science concepts in an almost conversational way, I simply gave up on the learning process. I am not alone, and I now recognize that with better education and comprehension, I could have

  • Made $5,000 more (per year) to attend college
  • Pursued any career path I might have taken interest in, rather than put myself in a box
  • Increased my opportunities for success in all aspects

If only I’d had a cross-curricular program like Weekly Writer to guide me. Again, not a sales pitch. I am a genuine Alabama child, grown up to realize all the things I missed out on by fear of failure and lack of resources. Teachers, I’d like you to remember two things:

  1. You are the most important supporter of a child’s mental development.
  2. You should never be expected to master all subjects, and teach them flawlessly.

You are in the business of an ever-evolving world, and consistently cater to the needs of countless learners. Bravo! If you are interested in finding a supplemental resource that gives you room to breathe and makes you the hero of your classroom, take it from a kid like me: you deserve it, and your students need it.

If you would like to learn more about Weekly Writer and how we would like to be part of your Village, don’t hesitate to ask! Feel free to connect with us at 1-888-696-1119, or via email: kate@vvclassroom.com. Again, thank you for all you do!

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people do not talk about these topics. To the next! All the best!!
