CoTeach is a radical idea where teachers work together, they are paid well, and they work 40 hours a week.
REASON – Black
Without reason there is no understanding. The goal of a teacher is to take young minds and train them to think like adults. There is only one adult in the classroom. The goal is that each teacher will bring 90 students per year closer to having the mind of a rational adult.
PURPOSE – Forest Green
When one is consumed by work there is no time for reflection and growth. An education does not begin and end at the bell. Both teachers and students need to have time to explore outside the confines of the school and reflect on what they are doing and where they are going.
SELF WORTH – Gold
There is no greater asset than your mind. And there is nothing more important than educating it so that it becomes more valuable. From our talents and abilities we derive self worth and from self worth we derive self esteem. As our minds grow, so do our talents and abilities. As our talents and abilities grows, so does our self worth. As our self worth grows, so does our self esteem.
Atlas was the primordial Titan who held up the celestial sphere. Reason, purpose, self worth: these are the things that drive the motor of the world.
