For years, this has been my dream; nothing more. On many nights, I recall laying awake in my bed musing on the construct and conduct of my school. I designed it.. memorized it.. dreamed of it.
My dreams brought me joy. Often times, I curled up under my covers and tossed and turned with a smile on my face as I envisioned the students; healthy, happy, empowered learners.
I am an educator. One educator. I am not an institution.
I’ve learned that no one(1) person can be an institution. But I can lead an institution correctly. I can create a collegial society of educators and empowered learners.
My dream is now my goal. I’ve gone back to school to develop my skills with knowledge.. I apply that knowledge in my current capacity as an Academic Dean, and I swear upon all that is holy in this world that I will not stop until I’ve achieved my goal or die trying.
One day, God willing, I will have my own school.. One that builds, empowers, educates, and helps children to become the most amazing people any one of us can imagine. Because that is what they deserve.
“Be the change”..... watch me!
