Enthusiasm is the Fuel

“So, what’s so great about your Study Groups at the Elementary School in Ras Beirut?” a teacher from another school in Lebanon asked me. It took me a while to know what to answer, and then it hit me! Enthusiasm about learning! Well, let me begin at the beginning: Teachers are given the freedom to choose the study group they would like to attend, they are given the opportunity to suggest new study group topics, they are encouraged to lead a study group based on an interest, a passion, an expertise of theirs, the diversity in topics is refreshing providing differentiation based on interest and need, and finally we have a balance between topics that address our emotional, physical, mental, and aesthetic well-being. This year we have study groups on: Coding, Water Color Painting, Students with Special Needs, Music, Post Graduate Studies, Sports Games, and using iPads. Enthusiasm for learning can only flourish in this kind of environment!
