Intoxicated by Possibility!

 

 

I just saw this on Pinterest and it totally sums up how I feel right now in relation to education, where it’s at, and where it’s going. That might make me naive, it might mean I am delusional, or it just might be the start of something awesome.

I pick door number three. You?

Time and again, the phrase:

Make. School. Different.

comes to mind.

If we would all unite in doing that, in pushing ourselves to the edge, in being willing to risk failure in order to create something awesome, I know we could do just that.

In speaking about helping and serving others, the pastor at our church says, “Do for one that which you wish you could do for all.”  He says that often people will be overwhelmed by the tremendous need in our community, our world and will stop before they start because it just seems helpless. If you are a teacher, a parent, a student or just someone who cares about education,  do for one that which you wish you could do for all.  You don’t have to change the entire education system overnight, but we have to start somewhere.

Right now, think about one thing you could do to MAKE SCHOOL DIFFERENT.  Now, do it. Make your mark.  Make a dent. Just do it! What will it be? Share your one thing below to inspire others.

    1. I love this. I noticed over the course of the Exhibition that the idea of what ‘action’ is was hard for some of the kids to grasp. I think more exposure to things like http://www.kidsareheroes.com and another kid-based website, the name of which is escaping me right now, need more attention throughout the year. Let’s keep thinking on this…..
