Learning How to Learn
“My goal is to make sure that you learn how to learn.” These words, spoken by my fourth-grade teacher, Mr. Tony Falara, on the first day of class, confused me in ways that made my 9-year-old brain hurt.
What in the world is this guy talking about? He is the teacher! It is his job to teach me. That is how I learn. I learn by listening and understanding what he says.
