Oh! Sweet Success! Of course, we share the problems and the barriers....but let's not forget to celebrate!! ~Cue fireworks and balloons~
All moments of success, no matter how small or big, help pave the way and provide hope. Share something positive that defined your career in education. Or something that had you jumping and leaping for joy in your classroom, school or community. Share some love.
Today, I was thinking of why we have chosen to develop our lives around education. As cliché as it may sound, I wanted and still want to contribute positively to the lives of all people. I want to collectively redefine education to build learning-focused, sustainable communities that are interconnected and benefit from inclusion. As I build capacity, knowledge and skills, I have a greater understanding of the far-reaching effects of schooling and the need for equal access to educational opportunities.
As we contribute to our classrooms, schools and communities, we should remind ourselves of the ' what' and 'why:'
What is the purpose of education? What are we trying to achieve and how? Why should we continue developing our schools?
