IgnitionAnd...

For the first time since 1964, schools will open in a few weeks without my physical presence on a campus.  Already, I'm hearing and seeing and feeling the upsurge in energy and preparation and enthusiasm of many of my colleagues in the field.

Great educators (and I've known a lot of 'em) 
and 
great schools (and I've worked in several of 'em) 
have some similar and endearing qualities:
  • They are open, honest and transparent in their dealings.
  • They have high expectations for themselves and others.
  • They embody and manifest respectfulness toward others.
  • They purposefully assign and add value to others (in small ways and large).
  • They passionately serve others.
  • They engender a sense of hopefulness about the future.
  • They are relentlessly focused on LEARNING!
That would be a pretty attractive recipe for any entity or profession, huh?



...And...Liftoff!
