It is a pleasure to teach Challenge at Westfield. But a class can be anywhere - outside, in a field - it's the people and material that make a class worthwhile - not the brick and mortar. Covid-19 won't stop Westfield kids from learning! Working with the second- through fifth-grade students in the STEM and LAH programs is exciting and fun for me, even after over 2 1/2 decades! Our motto is "Never Say Can't!" which cultivates perseverance towards the difficult tasks they face when they walk through the Challenge door. (Or in this particular school year, open up their Challenge Google Classroom page, or Zoom Session!) As the years pass, the children support each other, challenge one another to improve, and form long-lasting friendships. Everyone knows each other from last year, so our teamwork skills are strong already! It's going to be another outstanding year!
