Teachers' Inspire Me
Today I did a workshop for the staff of Binscarth school, a small rural K-8 school a four hour drive from Winnipeg. They had asked me to come out and work with them, but I was unable to find the time to drive out and do so this term. These teachers were so motivated to learn, to make a difference for their students - that they drove in on a Saturday to meet with me. That's 8 hours of driving, and giving up a Saturday at the end of term when everyone is tired...
I am just so moved by their dedication to their students. Kudos to you Binscarth teachers!
