Inspirational Kids

I started a new blog last night.  Kind of a spur of a moment thing, really, but I think it will be fun.  The blog was inspired by George Couros (@gcouros on Twitter) who posted a wonderful video about an amazing little boy named Caine.

The blog will focus on all the amazing kids we teach (like Bridget), kids we may know personally, and inspiring kids we find on the internet (like Caine).

We can learn a great deal from these inspiring young people. We can learn many lessons about how we take on challenges ourselves, and how we can help our students and children face challenges and become resilient.

Hopefully, we, as educators, can also think of ways of taking some of these lessons into our schools and into our classrooms.

Here’s the link: Inspiring Kids Blog.

If you know of any inspiring kids you’d like to share, please send me a message I’d love to include their story in the Inspiring Kids blog.

About Tia M. Dawson

There are many things that define who I am as a person. First of all, I am a mother of 3 wonderful children! I can not express how fortunate we are to have our children in our life! Secondly, I am a Principal of an elementary school Langley, BC. Lastly, I am a person who loves photography. I gain so much enjoyment and satisfaction taking photos. I have learned a great deal about photography since I purchased my first dSLR in 2008. There is so much more to learn though! All three of these things help to describe who I am as a person, but also demonstrate my love of learning - nothing is ever stagnant with any of these. I love to learn!

    Tia, on your new blog, be sure to put your Twitter names so people can contact you easier if they have a student to share. I think this blog idea is the best I’ve seen in a LONG time!!! I’ll be keeping it on my list of ways to share what students are doing!!
    Love it,
