Close your eyes. Wait. Open them. I hope you’ve opened them. Maybe just squint a little and imagine a work place where everyday, every individual comes to learn something. That’s EVERYONE’s goal. People come to this place because they recognize that learning is valuable, perhaps the most valuable thing a person can do with her life.
Okay. You can stop squinting. Wait for the slight headache to fade and ask yourself if your school was the place you imagined. If you did, you’re fortunate enough to belong to a professional learning community.
