Teach from the heart

Some end-of-year words of encouragement from high school teacher Lauren Fardig-Diop, who received our Courageous Educator Award in 2012.

I know that we are all exhaling a huge sigh of relief because June is within our reach, but I encourage you to press on; keep teaching how you know is right, every day that you have kids sitting in front of you.  

I encourage you to teach from the heart, no matter what subject you're working within, whether you're teaching at a university or coaching a team.  

Heart is what is missing from education today, and it is up to us to bring the soul back to this system.
