We all know it takes a village to raise a child. A vital role in that village is that of an educator. Our children look up to the individuals the moment they lay eyes on them. Every single day educators change the world.
Dr. Belinda George made being a part of that village personal. Elementary students are told to read a book each night or to have someone read to them. This activity is crucial in instilling a love of reading in children. Dr. George took the responsibility into her own hands.
The Washington Post writes ‘“I don’t know if they are read to or not at home,” said Belinda George, 42, a first-year principal at Homer Drive Elementary in Beaumont, in Southeast Texas.’ Every Tuesday night, while donning her pajamas, Dr. George sits down in her living room and logs on to the school’s Facebook to go live with a story. She engages scholars of all ages by asking questions, using animated voices, and encouraging families to watch together.
Her live videos are a joy to watch. Dr. George’s love shines through her stories. Be sure to check it out!
