What are you most looking forward to this summer? What do you imagine you will need to rely on your fellow teachers for?
I look forward to being part of an incredible coalition: my fellow teachers and my students, of course, but also our community partner and the local elementary-schoolers we will work with this summer – all united by a passion for public service and strong belief in the change it can bring. In the coming days, I will rely heavily on this partnership (and yes, you too, wise online community!) to navigate how we can serve our community partner constructively while at the same time challenging and inspiring our Breakthrough students. A pretty puzzle, no doubt – but one we shall relish!
