Inspiration from an Iron Man

I really enjoyed the Wow2 this week with Scott Rigsby, the first double amputee to complete an iron man.

This honest discussion gets to the heart of education and what we do as teachers. The chat room was riveted and very quiet.

He says he has four messages for students:
  1. Have a Dream (and tell good people around you about it)
  2. You have a choice: Faith or Fear
  3. Expect Hardships
  4. Climb YOUR mountain to YOUR finish line
It was a great discussion. I was so nervous at the beginning and found myself stumbling over the words to say!
