What inspires you in the classroom? The classroom is a place of journey and travel for each individual present. Classrooms should consist of learners, teachers, facilitators, leaders, followers, administrators, doers, passers, and everything in between. It is the responsibility of the leader to take on each role at some point in each classroom... this is when the inspiration is born! The talents and abilities of our faculty, staff, and students is inspiring through a variety of lenses in the classroom.
I enjoy the inspiration of struggle, braveness, humbleness, boastfulness, pride, and just being unsure at times. It's at these vulnerable levels that we move students and move the needle of education. I love our teachers and students and the lasting inspiration they give me daily!
