Over the weekend, WJCL aired a segment highlighting 5th grade teacher Betsy Sampey. Click HERE to watch the short video segment.
Video intro: Betsy Sampey may teach children how to read and write better, but it’s her methods and attitude that resonate with her students at Savannah Country Day School. “Trying to build that self-confidence and ownership of their own learning is almost just as important as what I am teaching," Sampey said. "And I always tell them it’s okay to get it wrong. A lot of times that’s how we learn is through our mistakes.” And when they make a mistake, she’s right there with a smile and a positive approach.
