Inspiring minds is the most important aspect of education. If learning simply gives you more knowledge, then how can it begat power? Of course, i am referring to the notion that "Knowledge is power'. The question then becomes...."what is power?" Knowledge is gained through some part of the learning process. In the teaching profession, we tend to get lost in the structure given for teaching but we seem to forget the importance of the implementation.
Does it stimulate excitement?
Does it invoke thought?
Does it spark interest?
Does it relate?
These are some questions that come to mind every time I step foot inside the school building. I think...there are thousands of teachers in the surrounding area... how can I stand out? How can I provide students with an experience that they will never forget? I then remember things from my childhood that I loved to do. I loved to use my imagination to take things that I experienced and create new experiences from inspiration. So then what comes to mind is.....how can I inspire?
