After reading about Heather Renz's Mastery Club on her site, I asked her if we could use it in our classroom and on my site. Earning achievements and getting a certificate for their accomplishments is a great reward. I want to encourage students in my class to challenge themselves and I am thrilled when students show pride as they learn something new. Teachers should encourage their students to go above and beyond what they "had" to do in class. I hope to inspire everyone with a desire to learn new things all the time. People should be lifelong learners.

"Knowledge is power! Make the best of it!"
