It’s been a tough few months for teachers! Putting your personal lives aside for a while, focusing on educating those growing minds from a distance isn’t easy, but you made it happen and why? Because you care. You care about each and every child in your class.
And it is your true passion for education that demonstrates what it means to be intelligent.
Intelligence is not about grades, it’s not about holding your pencil right, sitting up straight or listening to the teacher.
Intelligence is about acceptance, empathy, compromise, communication and love. It’s about understanding what is wrong with the world and believing that you have the power to change it.
The belief that you can make a difference is key!
Many of the old measures of intelligence are now redundant. Yes, society wants to hold onto these prehistoric measures of intellect by explaining that all is doom and gloom.
That the economy is crashing, the markets are down and the world is ending, but the truth is that it’s all about love.
Education is truly about peace and understanding between all living things.
Remember that even though it’s cloudy, the sun is still shining and as an educator you are that sun shining behind the clouds.
Now let’s go out there and change the world.
