May Angelou once said, “Do the best you can, until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” This statement, although simple, is very powerful. Educators today are challenged with the noble endeavor of creating “Lifelong Learners”, young men and women who will continue to educate themselves once their formal education has ended. May Angelou’s statement is a very succinct plan for lifelong learning. “Do the best you can…” is where we should all begin and is a characteristic that we want to instill in the students at Brazos ISD. The second part of this quote, “…until you know better”, is a little more challenging. “Knowing better” is an active process. Creating a habit of searching for “better” by reading and communicating with others who are more knowledgeable and reflecting on and evaluating our current practices is an important step in the plan to becoming lifelong learners. The third, and most difficult step in this plan is to “do better”. Doing better requires doing something new or different. New and different is difficult for us. We are creatures of habit. The good news is, we can control our habits. Getting better is a matter of creating good habits and replacing bad habits with productive ones.
Good organizations, including good schools, are learning organizations. Brazos ISD is a “learning” school. Not just for children, but for adults as well. The teachers and administration are committed to the habit of doing the best we can, searching to learn “better”, better strategies to instruct students, better ways to manage student behavior, and better means to teach students to become lifelong learners. Processes and habits are evaluated and adjusted so Brazos ISD can best serve our students in the future. Because the faculty and staff at Brazos ISD exemplify lifelong learning, the students are much more likely to create those habits in themselves. St. Jerome put this in terms that all of us can understand, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Till your good is better and your better is best.”
