When I read over it, I was like “Hold your horses, woman!” “How did you gallop from STEM education to …….. safeguarding the planet”?
Well, that happened for two reasons: (1) I have a vision and (2) I am a superhero.
Your vision is your utopian dream for the future; it describes what you want the world to become and how things will look when your ultimate dream comes true. What is my vision?
I envision a world where each person makes informed decisions and takes appropriate actions that ensure the wellbeing of the planet and ALL its inhabitants. And I see education (STEM education in particular) as an important part of realizing that vision.
As I mentioned in Robinson’s Weblog #005: For Goodness’ Sake, Will You Please Sit Down? Part Two: Your Ego is not Your Amigo, teaching is my superpower. And I chose to use my teaching superpower to see my vision for the world realized.
I’m just crazy enough to believe that educators have the power to ensure the wellbeing of the planet. Yup. We are real life superheros safeguarding the planet using our teaching superpowers.
