I Believe

I have to admit I was feeling a little low this morning. Perhaps it's something to do with the depth of winter. Perhaps it's because it's been snowing for days and I haven't seen the sun. I needed a pick me up. Then I read this amazing blog post and video from What Ed Said and it made me realise, once again, that teaching is the best and most important profession in the world. Students will learn to be creative when they are allowed to experiment, solve problems and take risks in a secure educational environment. Ordinary children will often become extraordinary when they know we expect great things of them.

  1. Maggie, this video was a pick-me up for me today, too. Must be the middle of the winter blues. It is so inspiring to hear students and educators challenging one another to believe and achieve.
