“We have more work to do. Hard work, frightening work, uncertain work, unending work. Work that may test us, work that my defeat us, work for which we may not get the credit, but work on which the whole world depends.”
Casey was not talking education, but businesses. I could not help but stop and think that this is the essence for every single person involved in education. We brave the front lines of education to help students every single day find that itch to learn and prepare themselves for the future.
As educators this quote holds true. We work tirelessly, often are only told what we are doing wrong, and rarely receive proper credit. This does not stop us. We press on because we know what is needed and right to get the kids ready to be awesome!
