Limitless Possibility

As we come to the end of another year, I am reminded about my goals at the beginning of the year to
open young minds to limitless possibilities, and to engage the intellect and imagination in daring pursuits of academic rigour and challenge. I want my students to walk away from this year not only with expansive knowledge or newly developed skills but something much deeper. I want them to really truly know that they have what it takes to find their own path and stay their course.  I want them to believe in themselves as learners but also as remarkable individuals with the ability to make their own mark on the world - that they can and SHOULD do this!

I want them to know that they have what it takes, even on the toughest of days, despite the difficulty and despite the upheavals. They really can achieve feats of greatness. I want to show them where to look so they truly see what they are capable of!

Learning is so much deeper than the every day results!

I try to focus on this daily, some days are definitely better than others. It's easy to get caught up in the delivery of well executed lessons and achieving specific outcomes. Good intentions get pushed to the back burner. As I reflect on a year gone by, I analyse critically on how I have gone throughout the year. 

Did I show more or tell more? 

I want my students to look within themselves and see what I see!

Limitless possibility!
