Who Do You Work For?

Yes, we all work for organizations, but who do you really work for?  Who is at the center of your creation, activity, and effort.

In the end, I work for my students.  They are at the center of my efforts and practice.  They are the muse that energize, motivate, and direct my work.  I enjoy serving their needs and helping them grow. That's why I became a teacher.

In schools, I believe that the students should have center stage--they should be the focus of our work, both independent and collaborative. If students are not the central consideration, then there's a problem to analyze and solve.
