Every once in a while, I come across a video that I just have to share on here to inspire teachers all around the world. The video above is a music video from Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros for their song, Man on Fire, and it shows teenagers following their dreams in all their dancing, double-dutching (yes!) and cheerleading forms.
Half-way through the video, you start to see the parents of the kids, and their coaches & teachers, and that's about when I start to think just how awesome the video really is.
As teachers, we live to inspire, to educate, to foster & grow dreams. We strive for excellence, push to raise the bar and challenge limiting beliefs.
We do what we do day in and day out, and every once in a while we're reminded just why we're here. Thank you Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Stripes for reminding me of this today.
I wonder if you'll feel the same way? What do you think? Did you need this kind of reminder today too?
