Self Directed Learner within HIDOE (Hawaii Department of Education)

IF we engage the GLOs we can engage the individual...AND we must go to Project Based Learning, letting the child lead the learning.  A child centered classroom is respectful in all communications.  Public school has been in existence for approximately 200 years.
