I am fortunate to have stumbled upon my passion, and to be living it each day: being a teacher. However, being a teacher is so much more than any single individual can describe. It is an embodiment, and one which I am deeply passionate about as it is so personal to me (particularly related to Public Education, but that is a story I will save for a later time.)
Due to this passion, I believe it is my duty to make sure the “narrative” of education is one that exemplifies all its facets, albeit a task that is extremely difficult, but worthy of chipping away at. My belief is that I can either choose to accept the public view of education, or I can choose to change it.
And so I choose the latter no matter the perception others may have.
It is my duty not only for my profession, but for my students.
Therefore, I am honored and excited to take part in #teachingis this week, an initiative promoted by Brianna Crowley, an ASCD Emerging Leader via Teaching Quality. I encourage all educators to watch her video here: #teachingis.
