Let’s Get Our Learn On


In my Convocation closing remarks, I quoted the Kid President: Get your learn on. I have had several people ask me which of the Kid President videos this came from so I did a little research. It’s from the “Kid President’s Pep Talk to Teachers and Students” published last September. The notes indicate that the Kid President believes we’re all teachers and we’re all students. He asks, “What are you teaching the world? Who are you learning from?” It’s really worth the 4 minute watch: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwlhUcSGqgs

I hope you have learned something new from your students or colleagues these first 7 days of school and I really hope someone has learned from you. We are never too old or too smart to acquire new knowledge. As bestselling author Alvin Toffler said, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” Once again, let’s get our learn on people!

Have a great 2nd full week of school!

Take care. Be safe. Stay well.
