This past week, I was in a training session held at the Board of Education office. I was reminded by our superintendent along with our presenter from the state Department of Education of the ALSDE motto that should ring true in all classrooms: "Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day." Just how do we go about trying to enact this motto in the Guntersville City School system? Let me try to give you some of the ways that happens at GHS.

On a given day at Guntersville High School, teachers are preparing for multiple classes. Some of the classes might have less than 10 students, while others might have well over 20 students based on the subject. In most cases, the class will have students at various levels of proficiency in the content. Yet the dedicated instructor will reach the students at their level. The advanced student will be challenged, and the struggling student will be remediated to allow for learning to take place in all parts of the learning spectrum. Every student at GHS deserves the best we as educators have to offer.
