“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” - Albert Einstein.

"This quote is in my room to remind students that all knowledge began with a vision, and brave people who were not afraid to ask questions. I may teach skills in a certain way, but I encourage my students to explore the endless questions they have and to create unique ways to make the content relevant to them. I believe that, at a certain level, we need to hold students responsible for their learning, but it is up to the teacher to provide a safe environment where creativity and confusion are welcomed and transformed." - Rachael Hadden
