On paths to possibilities

"It's easy for anybody to point out what a kid does wrong. But that's not what a good teacher does. A good teacher goes out of his way to figure out what the kid does right and then sets the kid on a path of confidence and success." --Teach Paperless


Liking this quote—

And thinking and wondering---

It was not uncommon to seek out a youngster’s talents, to build on them, and set them on such path-- years ago-- this statement would not have been so remarkable.

It’s a mindset that often leads to unforeseen learning and achievements—to young people with heads held high and eyes on the future.

Can this mindset also be of value in professional development as we seek to engage reluctant professionals in 21st century learning?
