Let's start with inspiration. Have you ever looked up the definition of inspiration in the dictionary?
But I did look it up on Google [cue lame joke sound effect].
(I’m a millennial, what can I say?)
So, lame jokes aside, the definition of inspiration goes something like this…
Something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create. [thank you Merriam-Webster)
What if we tailored this to the teacher?
Something that makes [a teacher] want to do something or that gives [a teacher] an idea about what to do or create.
My friends, this is something that I like to call Teachpiration!
I am super stoked to bring to you this brand new series, exclusive to the TtW Tribe.
Now, I believe you are reading this [and correct me if I’m wrong] because the mission of Teach the World resonates with you in some way. Am I right?
To bring it back, TtW’s mission is all about inspiring teachers…or in other words inspiring YOU!
So…hence…I am delivering to you a [weekly] dose of teachpiration, straight to your inbox!
It’s time to get inspired, my friend!
I don’t know about you, but occasionally a story comes across my news feed about a teacher or a kid who is absolutely ROCKING it to make this world shine a little bit brighter.
Whenever I see these kinds of stories, my heart literally feels like it is going to explode and I am reminded of why I am so passionate about this work.
We are not alone out there, guys.
There is a world of teachers who are movin’ and groovin’ every single day and there are kids with SO. MUCH. POTENTIAL. just waiting for that person to come along in their lives to inspire them to greatness.
I believe stories that highlight this kind of teachpiration need to be shared.
Not only because they are stories that deserve to be told and work that's worth shining a spotlight on… but also because its stories like these that speak to our teacher souls and inspire us to play bigger for our students.
Each week I will bring to you a story about teachers making a difference and kids changing the world.
And guess what?
You’re going to get your Teachpiration at the start of every week, so you can walk into your classroom when the week begins with your creative juices flowing, ready to change some lives.
How’s that sound?
I think it sounds like the game is about to get real interesting for all my teacher world-changers out there! :)
Soooo….join the tribe, get your Teachpiration, and let’s get out there and Teach the World!
Join the TtW revolution. Together, we can shape creative future leaders in classrooms around the world!
We are a community of educators working to shape creative future leaders in every classroom around the world.
