Daily Edventures: Everyday Heroes
I was highlighted yesterday by Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector organization, as a Global Hero in Education. To be included amongst an amazing group of people who are helping bring about change to our current educational system is an honor. The fact that I am able to regularly help children and their families gain access to information, skills and resources that can help improve their lives is fulfilling and inspiring to me on a daily basis.
This year, Mr. Salcito's blog Daily Edventures is highlighting 365 everyday heroes who work to improve education, and sharing what inspires them, what frustrates them, what hopes do they hold for the future of education and more.
While their challenges may be local, it’s very likely that their solutions have global importance. What works in one school in Bangkok could also work in a tiny classroom in sub-Saharan Africa. And our aspirations for our kids are the same, no matter where we live. Parents, teachers, and administrators – we all want our kids to succeed. What’s more, in the connected world we live in today, no educator needs to work in isolation. Collectively, we can share what is working, talk about it, and help lead the way to a better future for our children.
When we improve education, we improve families. When we improve families, we improve communities. And when we improve communities, we improve the world.
Because Anthony Salcito is highlighting interesting and diverse people, I am sure you will learn about some of the amazing things happening in education today when you visit Daily Edventures.
