I would say that Rafe is a visionary because he's able to see the jewel in every student and polish them until they shine. He says" Children are more likely to eat well when there is more on the menu" and that is how he approaches his teaching. He gives the students the opportunities to find themselves and discover their own individual identities as well as learn what it means to be an American. I liked how he set an example for his students which helped to show his commitment to them. I also thought it was great that he taught history by actually going to historic places and getting a more in depth understanding. I agree that it is of utmost importance to start getting kids on the right track early. A goal that I have for this next year is to try not to be so controlling over things I have no control over. As redundant as that may seem it is in great part adding worries to my life that are unnecessary.
