Teachers = Students - Housatonic Horizons

When it comes to students, a little bit of respect can go a long way.

I love the Bronx. Despite its rep as this drug infested, crime riddled and even (get this) post- apocalyptic wasteland that outsiders have deemed as our reality, the Bronx is beautiful. It’s absolutely a diamond in the rough, full of so much culture at every turn.

Mr. Mortali, you left a big significant impact on me that I will never forget and will continue to carry on with me for the rest of my life.

Throughout my years in high school you were a great teacher to me.

Every student deserves to have the very best teacher possible. That means a teacher who lives to teach, who believes every student is worthy of receiving the best education possible, one whose joy in being with their students is contagious. In a word, a teacher who connects!

http://ow.ly/Et9E50zuwRZ

With a month down of being out of school and classes being moved online, I think we can all agree this is a crazy shift in all of our lives. Something that I have found beneficial is having to embrace this change with a positive attitude.

Have you ever told yourself that you completed an assignment, but in reality, the work did not get done? If so, you are not the only one! Whether you are a visual learner or not, taking physical notes guarantee work completion more than online or mental notation.

During students' transition to online learning, emailing has become the primary means of communication with professors, but many of them don't know how to use email effectively. Learn how here: http://ow.ly/qVav50zrIFe

Although the mainstream use and vast popularity of Email began in 1995 due to the introduction of the AOL messaging system (and eventually developed into a necessary form of communication in the 2000’s), various students and working professionals have failed to master the correct formatting of onl...

Play It Loud - Housatonic Horizons

Behind the kit, drum sticks, guitar, and guitar picks, getting the frustrations of being inside, out #inspiring #tremendous #undeniable http://ow.ly/5eBB50zbgJd

You’ve all heard the phrase “Where words fail, music speaks.” Well, I think we’re all at a loss for words when trying to converse about our current state of affairs. We continue to repeat the same descriptors: boring, lame, annoying, boring. Let’s change it up a little: instead of talking ...
