Being The Best For the World (Not the Best in the World)
This video captures Clint Pulver’s story. It just may change the way you think about being a teacher, leader, parent, coach, and friend.
You don’t need to be the best teacher in the world. Instead, we should focus on being the best teacher for OUR students. Just try to be the best for the people around you, and listening to what they need, and how you can help.
Being the best for the world starts with empathy.
