Teaching Young Adolescents. By Lauren Dotson and Sara Cottrell. Quote to Consider.

“Middle schoolers are very impressionable. They are working hard to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Students I work with really want to feel like they ‘belong.’ Students are very creative and energetic at this age. I feel like middle school is a ‘critical’ time for students. During these years, experiences can either ‘make or break’ a student in terms of their personal beliefs and/or attitudes about school and life in general.”
-- Lora Davis (middle school health teacher)
