I’m often reminded that I have one of the best jobs in the world. Getting to work with districts around the world, I continue to value and appreciate the high quality of people who have dedicated themselves to helping young people. Being able to spend time with these people, hear their stories, encourage them and connect them to others, represents a fairly large part of my work. Building and growing community in a variety of ways is pure joy.
Another of the great privileges I have as part of my work at Discovery Education is to pursue my passions. One of those passions is storytelling and videography. Much like my writing and speaking, I recognize I have some ability but also recognize how much I have to learn. Last year I shot and edited 8 videos from educators in Canada, the UK and the US. I had filmed another in April but for a variety of reasons, was not able to get it edited and produced until today.
I continue to be fascinated by stories and how they forge, create and strengthen connections and build community. I hope to share more of these and also continue to experiment with the whole realm of storytelling. I’ll always be learning.
