Mona has been an educator for 22 years. She is currently a Reading Specialist with the Kensico School in Valhalla.

Title: Monthly Educational Video Challenge

Mona’s Short Story:I love the quiet moments in my classroom when we are engrossed in reading and thinking. I love the loud moments in my classroom when we get so fired up we all talk at once. I love the happy moments in my classroom when everyone is joined together by laughter.

Mona’s Idea in a Nutshell: Educators! We need you! Participate in a Monthly Video Challenge to ReDesign Education!

Mona’s Burning Question:

How do we get the decision makers to understand that this over-emphasis on testing in the public schools is not actually improving education?

Can you help Mona solve this important problem in education? Weigh in!
