Begin this school year year by remembering Simon Finch’s quote, “The purpose of education is change so your students can change the world.” Start this school year by being an idealist, or a person who cherishes or pursues high or noble principles, purposes, and goals. Be an optimist, reformer, visionary, and utopianist. Believe you can make a difference. Be transparent. Engage and ally the parents of your students. Create learning stations, and incorporate technology as much as possible.
