A quote from Sir Ken Robinson, "The real role of leadership is climate control, creating a climate of possibility" started my thought process as to how possibility is actionable.
As a teacher, it is my role to create a climate of possibility for my students each day. My role is not to spoon feed them information or give them the answers, but provide a classroom where they are free to explore, discover, and learn unfettered by the limits of my imagination.
Possibility means that I will not limit my students based on expectations. By providing a range of ways for them to express their learning, I will hopefully allow all students the opportunity to be successful in meeting the standards for which they're held accountable.
Acting on this word means that I will help my students see possibility within themselves and teach them to not allow the preconceived opinions of others to constrain them.
Here's to 2018 and all the possibility it holds.
