"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid" -Albert Einstein
Hello, my name is Facetia Branch and I am the EC Resource Teacher here at Zeb Vance. I began teaching in 2008 at Henderson Middle School and transitioned to the elementary setting at G.W. Carver Elementary in 2015.
I am a native of Henderson, NC and believe in giving back to my community. I completed my studies at North Carolina Central University earning a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I also received my Master of Public Administration from Strayer University and completed my lateral entry certification in Special Education (K-12) from East Carolina University. I selected the field of Special Education because I believe that every child is capable of learning and that we should teach them according to the way that they learn. According to John F. Kennedy, "a child miseducated is a child lost". Therefore, we must spark our students' passion for learning. The purpose of education is to instill the spirits of humanity and virtues to young minds so they can become responsible citizens and the leading lights that illuminates the humanity around them.
I am reminded that:
"Every child deserves a champion -an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they can become the best they can possibly be". -Rita Pierson
I STRIVE DAILY TO BE THAT CHAMPION!!!
