How Will You Inspire?
I want to share with you some thoughts about this school year I have discussed already with the staff. At the end of the last school year, I asked our staff a question. How will you inspire? I asked them to think about it all summer. I told them we would revisit that question on the first day of staff in-service. It is a very intriguing question. Inspiration comes in many different forms and during the most unlikely times. As I reflected on the question myself I felt that I came back to one thought over and over again. I can't know my "How" until I am certain of my "Why". Simply put, why did I become an educator? Why did each one of us in the school district pass up other opportunities to work with students? I found this video and it helped give me some clarity. After watching the video I decided to make a little equation to help others understand my thoughts.
WHY + WHAT= How
I know my "Why". I want to change the lives of the students and staff that I come in contact with through education and positive relationships. I already knew my "WHAT". I have been blessed to be the Superintendent of Clinton-Massie Local Schools for the past two years. "What" I do has so much more impact if I remind myself daily of "Why" I do it. As I put those two things together I am able to answer the question, "How will I inspire?". I am motivated every day to meet the needs of students and staff. I want to set a good example for those under my care. I have set goals for myself this year to inspire. I have asked the staff to do the same. At the end of our first in-service meeting, I asked the staff to answer my question, "How will you inspire?" Their answers can be found here. It will be a great year if we inspire every day.
