  • Big ideas and global challenges
  • One size fits one

  • How are you going to change your practice to:Meet the needs of all learnersMeet the needs of the future learnersImprove professional practice
  • As our time here draws to a close I would like to leave you with a thought more so a challenge take a chance and remember that every child that passes through the door of your classroom deserves the same opportunity for success and the same opportunity to fail, when they fail as we all do…pick them up dust them off and have them try again because without failing they may never learn how great it feels to finally succeed!
