Talent at Mountain Valley.

Another week is in the books, and what did I learn? I learned that the power of a positive community is amazing. Mountain Valley School District recently had a community dinner and facilities improvement meeting to discuss the construction of a new school through the Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) grant. Over fifty people attended, shared their ideas, and I left feeling a great sense of pride for our rural community in Saguache, Colorado.
American philosopher and educational reformer John Dewey stated, “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” Knowledge and information are increasing at unprecedented rates. The teacher is no longer “the sage on the stage.” As a result, education must change to keep pace, or traditional schools will become obsolete, like Blockbuster video rental stores of the past.
To meet the changing needs of students, Mountain Valley teachers are constantly innovating, creating new and improved classroom experiences for their students. These lessons are designed to engage twenty-first century learners whose futures will demand problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and technology skills. At Mountain Valley School, we are working hard to embrace change and make sure that our students are prepared for the future.
I realize that today, more than ever, kids need our support. Saguache County has the highest child poverty rate in the state of Colorado, yet the kids that walk into our schools are so resilient, leaving personal problems at the door and working hard to build new and better futures for themselves.
As a community, we must invest in the future, and today’s students are our future. They are the future leaders of the community, future scientists and future change agents. If you are not already doing so, I ask that you get involved in our community meetings and school activities. Make a positive difference in the lives of children. It is time to invest in our school, our students and our future. It all starts with you.
If not you, then who?
