Let's remember August 29th, 1963
For me, my dream is to look back on my career one day and know that I have made a distinct difference to the students that I have taught over the years and the teachers that I have met and had the priviledge to work with. To know that I was an important part of a wider group of passioned educators that revolutionized the way that PE is taught. To know that I not only made a difference from a physical education point of view but also from a holistic perspective in regards to education in general.
I have been asked so many times why I blog. How I find the time to keep up with things considering I have a full time job, I coach, and I have a family to look after. To be completely honest, I have difficulty answering this question. There is a very personal side to why I think I blog, but sometimes I am left not really knowing. What I do know is that something pushes me to do so and I truly love and value every second of it. If my work can help to make a difference in another teacher's life, I couldn't ask anything more. What an honor that would be. So, I guess that is my dream, to know that one day everything I have done will have made a difference to others.
Even if you do not publicly announce what your dream is (which is fine of course!), I encourage you to record what it is in a journal or to share it with someone who you are close with. Thanks for reading.
