Inspiration From the Twittersphere...

And to think I almost changed the name of my blog this week for fear of what people who don't know me would think. Sometimes we just stumble across the people or words that we need, as I did when I came across these words in a post by the inspiring Angela Maiers:

“I believe we all have a duty to share our genius and make a difference in the world; and it’s in tapping into our truth that you will ultimately unleash the genius from those we lead, love, and serve.”

Each student has a special gift. Don't give up until you find it! Help them find their Genius and share it with the world. Forget About NCLB – We Must Leave No Genius Behind.
