In the short advertisement above, the creators do a great job of showing that every big success starts with many smaller successes and originates with an idea. The idea that the current reality can be better. Not just looking at what is, but what could be. It’s about seeing the possibilities and working to make them a reality.
Great educators are able to see the students they work with each day as well as see all the possibilities they can achieve. Like the video above, our students may not see the potential in themselves. This is where teachers can step in and help them dream big and give them the tools and the strategies to help them reach those dreams.
Looking at our current reality is important. But so is looking at the possibilities and dreaming big. It’s also important to recognize that there is no overnight success. Success comes from small moments and building on victories and reflecting on failures. Thank you to all the educators in our building and in classrooms around the world who help students see the possibilities and give them the support to make them realities!
