***Before needing to know what your children already know before I begin teaching the curriculum, I want to know if they have eaten, if they are comfortable, if they have clean clothes, if they have supplies, if they had a good night’s sleep, if they have someone who reads to them, if they feel wanted and loved… (The list goes on) Then, and only then, knowing these answers and fully understanding, will I be prepared to have your children ready to learn what a school system requires. If a child does not feel well, he or she will not learn well. If a child hasn’t eaten, is scared, fearful, worried, neglected; he or she will not learn well. When the heart is educated, the mind will follow. Not the other way around. Teach the whole child.
