SOL 5: reflecting on my #shortc cohort
We were asked to think of a Metaphor and/or image of the group of PVPs that we facillitators worked with at ShortCourse 2014.
I first came up with a quote. Last year one of my cohort -who also opened up this years event- was big on quotes and used them well and inspired me to realize I need to start using them in my blog next year.
So my thought on The Playful Penguins is:
So often you find that the people you’re trying to INSPIRE are the ones that end up inspiring you!
My image/symbol was that of an ice burg. This is a group of educational leaders who do so much that ‘”isn’t seen”. From deep, mindful thinking to purposeful decision making and always doing what is best for kids. Beneath ‘the surface’ is a very strong pedagogical/leadership foundation that enables others to see just part of what they have to offer. Their schools are in very good hands. The BCPVPA is fortunate to have them as members of our organization. BC will benefit from these educators working with our children.
Of course when we got to the banquet to share our thoughts, nobody else did the metaphor thing so I had to come up with a word to describe them on the spot:
A strong purpose to do education well!
