Welcome! “Inspiring the passions of today’s educators and students by encouraging progressive thought and innovative approaches to learning, leadership and parental involvement to develop thriving, empowered, future-ready scholars” is everything that I believe in and am passionate about, all rolled into one powerful sentence.
I wake up every day and this sentence rings in my ears. When I write on my blog and for the Huffington Post, this sentence is the beat of my heart. When I present at conferences, this sentence is shouted! Much more than just a sentence, it’s my mission, my goal, and my reason. We need to be inspired and passionate about what we do and why we do it. Regardless of politics, money, or policies, our children are the future and we want to see them succeed. My goal is to remind educators, parents and students of the why, while providing some insight into the what and how.
Feel free to look around while you are here – I offer lots of insight into different topics in my blog posts, and even have some free resources for you to use and share. Have a question or idea? Shoot me an email. I love answering questions and getting new ideas for my blog posts! – Dr. Rob, firstname.lastname@example.org
