- Big Dreams - I know what's possible in education, and I want to move in that direction with my work and effort.
- Connection - I choose this because I hope "others will join me" since together, we do better.
- Creative Itch - yes, "the voice inside. . .wants to be expressed."
- Dissatisfaction - I know we can do better
- Generosity - I like contributing
- Professionalism - because it is what good educators do
- Meaning - I want to do work that has meaning and makes a difference
Moving ahead in my field, education, is not always easy, but I am committed to continuing to hone my craft and do the best possible job with the work I do with and for children, their families, and colleagues. Onward.
