I've been reading Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography by Susan Cheever. The author writes about Louisa's educator father, A. Bronson Alcott. She writes that Bronson believed teaching to be an act of love. That statement really struck home with me. I've always put a great deal of thought and energy into personalizing and individualizing education for my face to face students. A significant source of motivation for that approach has been my desire to let students know that I care enough about them to take the time to know what interests them and what helps them find joy in learning--and then to provide it for them. How do I develop an instructional framework that allows virtual school teachers to communicate that interest and provide individual choices for the students they serve?
