Looking for passionate, talented, creative and dedicated teachers willing to take risks in improving their own learning to meet the needs of the 21st century student. Is this you?
If so, please read on. If not, I wish you the best of luck continuing your path of complacency, your status quo mentality and “this-is-how-I’ve-always-done-it philosophy”.
For those of us remaining, which I hope is the majority, let’s make a promise. Raise your right hand and say, “I, state your name, promise to prepare our students to be self-reliant, productive global citizens that can think, innovate, and be inspired to achieve.”
Good. Feels refreshing, right? Now we can get down to business.
