At North Newton, the theme for this year is “Learning Without Limits.” I am sure that all staff members who attended the convocation this year also have that same desire for their students. Educators can serve as the lens through which students see their own futures. The only way their futures are going to look bright is to not place limits on students’ aspirations and dreams. We need to help them see the possibilities! Here is an audio program file and a video that demonstrate this point quite well.

The entire video below emphasizes variability, but begin watching around 4:30 for the discussion that specifically relates to not placing limits on our students’ ability to learn and achieve.
