The post below originally ran on January 1, 2013 with the uplifting video which was created by 16-year old Sophia Pink, the daughter of author Daniel Pink. As I watched again last night, I thought it was a perfect blog post (and video) to share one again as we come to the last day of school in Burlington.
As my last post of 2012 mentioned, I love sharing work created by students with others. I am amazed on a daily basis by the thoughtfulness and insights that students have to offer and I feel so fortunate to be an educator in a day and age where it is so easy to share these examples with others in our school community and beyond.
With our students off on vacation for the past week, there really hasn't been anything new to share from our students, but I did come across an uplifting video that was created by a 16-year old in Washington D.C. Thanks to Daniel Pink for sharing the impressive work of his daughter Sophia on his blog today! It is a perfect video to watch as we begin a new calendar year and we consider the types of people and environments that can inspire us.
As I leave you with a favorite quote of mine below, I hope that you all feel the urge to honk often in 2013!
