"Education is the great equalizer.  It doesn’t matter one’s socio-economic background, education will open doors that were previously closed.  However, the challenge is getting yet another generation to buy into this belief that has been handed down to us from our ancestors and elders.  Students have living and breathing examples standing before them every day espousing the virtues of education.  Using every form of rhetoric to persuade them, we educators affirm that they too can be successful with hard work, diligence and perseverance.  For those with the “I want it now” mentality, the message may fall on deaf ears.  However, there are those other students whose thirst for knowledge motivates them to climb even through exhaustion; to toil even when the soil is dry; and to believe even when others have given up.  We educators at Bedford Academy are in the business of transforming students into scholars.  We strive to activate ALL of our students’ senses so that they see, hear, smell, touch and taste education.  We want academic excellence to be a part of their DNA!  I am Ms. Johnson and I teach AP English"
