Who Pushes You Forward?

There's a young member of our learning team that's pushing me.

He's pushing me to listen.

He's pushing me towards greater research in science.

He's pushing me to find better ways to engage all students and foster a happy learning team.

He's pushing me for more time for share, exploration, and investigation.

He's pushing change in the schedule to accommodate his and others' needs.

I know that this earnest young man is a good teacher. I know that his needs are worthy, and the push important.

So tonight I'll think about the ways that I can respond to the push.

Often it's our students that are our greatest teachers.
