Svaha Spirit Series: Teachers ~

We’ve all had teachers in school that made an impression on us. My English teacher Mrs Morton inspired our class because she was so passionate about the English language. I loved creative writing because it allowed personal expression in a class filled with rules. She would probably be horrified at my grammar in some cases but hey blogging is a loose form of writing…in general. I am still learning!

My Math teacher Mr Paulson was compassionate. The only reason I passed his Algebra class was because I tried so hard and he recognized my efforts! I came in everyday after school for help but still didn’t understand it. Sometimes you really do get graded on your effort kids!

Teachers have the opportunity to make a difference in our kids lives. My son and his friend were talking fondly of their teachers on our way home from school which made me smile because I knew exactly how they felt. Teachers make a difference! Taylor Mali is one of those teachers.

I’ve posted this video of Steve Jobs before but since Graduation is just around the corner I thought it was fitting. Enjoy, it’s worth the time I promise you…Pinky swear! 🙂 Stay Hungry…Stay Foolish!

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish!

You may have already seen this speech but it’s worth seeing a second time.  This is one of those inspiring video’s that leaves you feeling lifted!  I think it’s fitting being that Graduation is in the air!  I will attend my son’s Grade 5 farewell today, knowing that in a blink of an eye, it will be my Son setting out in the world to chase down his dreams!  All I can hope for is that he Dream Big ! Dreams are meant to be touched.

Graduation to me was a new beginning, an adventure.  Your life was about to begin.  You had been training for this moment for 12 years and the day has finally come.  Freedom!  Responsibility!  A chance to prove that you have what it takes to make a difference in the World.

Congratulations to all of you who have completed a goal in life that will stay with you forever, Education!
