Teaching is Hoping.

My hope emerges from those places of struggle where I witness individuals positively transforming their lives and the world around them. Educating is always a vocation rooted in hopefulness. As teachers we believe that learning is possible, that nothing can keep an open mind from seeking after knowledge and finding a way to know.

    Some I come across in reading, others are from folks I’ve read before and search for online, others I just stumble across unintentionally.
