- In the past, education in the United States focused on "Race to the Top" for more funds from the government and taught test taking strategies, instead of embracing creativity of the visual and performance arts and innovation with exploration.
- Based on the new changes in education, political leaders and people in the field of education can understood the importance of differentiated learning experience for children. Not all students "fit in one box" because educators encounter students with special needs, gifted & talented students, and English language learners.
- Therefore, as a cohesive unit the United States created the 21st century expectations of integration of technology focusing on critical thinking skills. However, students not only needed to have experience with technology, but also have the ability to problem solve, effective communication and listening skills to collaborate and lead others through example.

- Some schools need to ensure that all educators are offered professional developments, so students can have the most effective and efficient educational experience. As novice educators, we are asked to explore various resources like Engage NY and Georgia Common Core resources to best meet the needs of our students. In the same mindset, we need to teach our students to be resourceful and figure out technology doesn't replace learning, it only enhances the learning experience.

- The Seven Survival Skills allow students to become accountable for their own learning and in my opinion is aligned to Common Core State Standards expectations. The skills enhance survival in the classroom for the real world of the 21st century.
- Tony Wagner's seven survival skills should be a goal that all educators should teach daily because all students have the potential to become global leaders of tomorrow.

- In addition, my school site allows and embraces innovation with creativity. Riverview Elementary has embedded process of "Design Thinking" and empathy through the "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People."
- By allowing student to take risks and take initiative to be creative inside and outside the classroom. As an elementary teacher, my goal is "Keeping the End in Mind," which embracing each child's strengths and share their knowledge with peers. Let's prepare students to be innovators and problem solvers to follow their passion and contribute significantly to their community.
