Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. -Basil King
If you work in a school you have a mighty job. By that I mean you are so darn lucky to do what you do. You get to be around young people, otherwise known as students. They learn and grow by leaps and bounds. You are an integral part of that learning, growing, and developing.
If you work in a school you have a mighty responsibility, too. As in, people expect great things from your role as Educator. You are tasked to shape and chart the course of these young lives. Your students look to you and the example which you put on display for them. Your students need you so much. This is not to be taken lightly.
Finally, if you work in a school then you ARE a mighty force. I mean that as in you come to the aid of young people--day in, day out-- to bring them to the shores of acheivement.
Students need to feel capable. They need to know that what they say and what they do really does count. This, I believe, helps them to feel connected to the world in which they live. As they feel worthy and confident about themselves as individuals, they will be able to pursue their highest aspirations.
We must encourage our youth to set lofty intentions, and then support them as they set sail. How are you bold? How are you a mighty force?
