An Eye Level education starts with seeing things from student's eye level. This is a story about a teacher who lowered his height. A man was appreciating the art at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. As he approached each painting he would kneel down and look up at it. A curious visitor asked him why he was looking at the paintings from his knees. He replied,
"I am an elementary school teacher and I will bring my students here tomorrow. I was wondering how my students would enjoy the paintings from a student's eye level."
Eye Level is based on an educational principle where students learn at their own pace. When a teacher understands the learning needs of a student, the teaching are most effective.
