My goal is for students to become self-directed, self-motivated learners.
They should be able to set goals for themselves and focus on them in class. Kids should learn to manage their choices
in class (and in life). They should internalize which choices will help them succeed in class (and in life) and which
choices will have negative consequences. The goals they set for themselves will help them focus on their behaviors and
skills as students and people.
