One of my favorite things at NECC this year was the random placement of these acrylic boards, with grease pencils in a cup, inviting participants to share WHY they teach.
Here are some of the comments written: * For the aha moments! * For our children. * To help a child see opportunities! * To learn more myself. * Because I love children. * Making a difference can't be beat. It just inspires me. Because I want to change the world.
