Wow! Time flys! With the school year coming to a close and state testing taking place I have been a bit overwhelmed. So I apologize for being off task and not posting as regular to this blog.
Over this past week as I have had time, I was reading my regular blogs and came across a post that, of course, I cannot find now which mentioned the movie, “The Legend of Bagger Vance“. It got me to thinking about this movie and its many different messages. One that I feel is so important for students and teachers is to help students find their “True Swing”. Their true passion in life. Every student has a gift in a particular area, and it is so important for educators to help students find that area they are gifted in and have a passion for. This is the key to success for many students. Unfortunately, many time students do not find it until later in life and miss out on much of their education. Watch the video clip below, and as I said to my colleagues at our school lets make this one of our new goals to help students find their “True Swing”!
