Advice to a New Teacher

First, you are an agent of change, your mission is to change the world. And you will because this year and every year hereafter you have the possibility to impact around twenty-five souls. Those twenty-five will reach out and impact others throughout their lives. The whorls of your fingerprints are upon them like ripples emanating out from a pebble thrown into a pond.

Second, your mantra is: What are they learning? What if they don’t? What if they do? How do you know?

Nothing else is as important as these two guiding principles.
