Rocketship Education Makes Great Strides in Elementary Education Improvement

Rocketship Education is a new school system that started in the Bay Area in 2007, and has since expanded to include Nashville, Milwaukee and Washington DC. There is a total of 18 schools in these regions. The key difference between Rocketship and traditional schools is that we personalize the learning experience.

In a traditional classroom, a teacher will discuss one topic at a time for 30 or more students. Many students in this setting are left out, because they do not comprehend the material. We involve everyone in the group learning process, so that all students are moving forward.

At Rocketship we target learning to individual and personal needs of our students. We use technology and other learning methods to align content and judge the success of the learning experience for all students. We offer small group learning, peer group projects, and learning labs to help our students make good strides in their efforts.

We not only educate our students, we help educate parents on how they can best inspire and motivate their children. Our goal is to fill the gap we see in the traditional education system in the U.S. We want more children to finish college and reach their career goals.

In Rocketship classes, we make sure that if children are having difficulty keeping up, that they get into smaller groups where they can get more direct attention, and understanding. We have programs that push for better performance in math and other critical subjects. Our programs follow each student from the introduction of a topic, through the skill development phase to the complete understanding of it. Students come to us one of two grade levels behind in math or other subjects. We help them catch up.

We offer a new way to learn and it has been a major success for most of our students. It allows us to see and meet the needs of those students who are having trouble. The school is expanding due to its success with elementary students currently enrolled.

Edward Honig the Man Who Takes Care of Hearts in New York

People are quite good about taking care of their general health. However, sometimes their heart gets forgotten even though it is the most important muscle in their bodies. If your general practitioner believes that there is a heart condition possibility, they will call a cardiologist. People who have heart problems in their family should get a check-up more often just to eliminate the potential of a heart attack or any other heart issues that could be genetic.

Cardiologists are specially trained to identify and diagnose heart issues from the smallest to the possibly lethal ones. They will look at your overall health and check your blood pressure, weight, lungs, how well your blood vessels are performing and how well your heart is performing. Your weight and blood pressure have a direct impact on how well your heart is functioning, so if you are carrying extra pounds, have a chat with your doctor about the state of your heart and your blood vessels.

They have the information and the tools to identify the symptoms of a heart attack or a heart failure. They can also provide the necessary treatment so that you can walk out of the hospital on your own two feet. Any procedures that involve your heart, such as heart surgery or balloon angioplasty are in their line of work.

Most cardiologists are trained through several years of medical school. First, they will study general medicine and then spend time specialising in internal medicine. After that, it’s at least three years of specialized training in cardiology alone. All in all, doctors never stop learning, so if you are thinking about becoming cardiologists and long years of schooling don’t frighten you, go ahead.

One of the specialists standing out in the field is Edward Honig who works in New York. People most often can find him at the Glen Cove Hospital.

Blood pressure, the performance of blood vessels and even the performance of the lungs is necessary when working in cardiology.

He looks at diet as well, since that can have a substantial impact on his patients. Sometimes female patients avoid using male doctors, but he always says that if you need the best care, the name, age, race or sex of your attending physician doesn’t matter. If they can save your life, they will. Patients’ well-being is a priority where he is concerned.

Edward Honig is also a published author within his field. He believes that education is essential and medical journals are an excellent way to reach a wider audience. He always puts his patients first and believes that a good bedside manner is critical when trying to diagnose a heart issue.
