This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.
Knowledge isn’t power. The relentless pursuit and correct use of it is.
We “know” something has to be done. And we “know” it has to be done now.
We also know that from 10,000 years of civilized history we can kill the killers without stopping the desire to kill.
And we know we have proven answers from some very powerful people like Gandhi.
To achieve this “real peace” it takes a huge amount of super-human strength and intelligence, things teachers are naturally built for.
We couldn’t be teachers if we didn’t love who and why we teach with super-human love.
And we are perfectly situated to becoming super-smart every day as we become more intelligent about our students and how to teach them.
We are in a perpetual state of education.
We remember this, and become relentless in the pursuit of this, and we reach real world peace with every student we teach.
A beautiful theory that CAN BECOME an unbreakable everyday REALITY when we stop worrying and whining about what’s broken and focus instead on preventing our children from becoming broken by it, relentlessly.
