Careers
We're looking for rare individuals. Teachers with degrees in early childhood or environmental education and a fire in the belly to make a difference. Administrators with a head for business and a heart for helping children reach their full potential. People who are so invested that they'll stay with us for years, growing and developing our educational community. Is that you?

One of our parents forwarded me a link to a blog entry titled, “What a 4 Year Old Should Know?” by Alicia Bayer.  (Click on title to read the blog.)

My favorite line is the following: “That the single biggest predictor of high academic achievement and high ACT scores is reading to children. “

Years ago I started a small campaign in a small community geared toward reading to children.  It was in 1999 and I called it R2K (yes, a knock-off to the Y2K bug hype).  The R2K stood for Read to Kids.  I tried to shared statistics about the cons of television versus the pros of reading to children.  Since you probably have never heard of it, you can infer how successful my initiative was!

I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I and the parent who sent it to me did.
