My dear friend Jenny texted this photo to me:
Along with the photo, her message read, "Not that you misbehave...but this made me think of you and the way you are going to change the world."
Well Jenny, I accept your challenge of changing the world. I won't always be loud about it (now that I've learned that it's not all about me)...and people might not know I'm doing it. But, I'll challenge the status quo as I relentlessly find ways to engage students as readers. I will embrace new technology tools as I strive to create 21st century learners. Most importantly, I'll challenge my colleagues to find their voice as a leader and help them serve as a catalyst for change.
Sounds easy, right?!? My hope is that everyone (not just educators) sets out tomorrow with the goal of making the world a little bit better than it was today. May the force be with you!
