How Smart Are Kids!?

How Smart Are Kids!?

By Cassie Severn

Bigfoot X-ingThat’s not really a question I have pondered before.  Being a teacher, I know kids are able to do pretty much anything they set their minds to do.  However, I have been pleasantly surprised with one particular student in my class.  He has formed his own website.  I teach fourth grade!  He’s 9!

This kid comes from a technologically advanced home and I’m sure he has been creating software and cleaning up hardware since he was born!  He and a friend decided that they were interested in Bigfoot.  They started doing their research and pretty soon, designed and built a website around their findings.  Can you believe that?

I remember when I was kid, I spent my time designing and building forts and secret trails through the woods.  I would never have imagined that in only a few years, kids my age would be full speed ahead on the information super highway.

Now don’t get me wrong, he is friends with the great outdoors, too.  He’s not just some nerdy kid who plays video games all day.  I know for a fact that he was out camping this past weekend!

It’s just funny to me, looking at our own backgrounds, how far kids and their intelligence have come.  This kid could be the next Bill Gates.  I’m just saying…
