Teaching Struggles - Some medicine.

I have the honor and privilege of quite often giving end of year, end of course, graduation and other speeches to teachers. I take it seriously and usually end with a story. Stories work well and inspire. One of the ones I've used most often is this one - MAKE A DIFFERENCE. But I have a number of personal anecdotes and also folktales. You can read many others in the thread I've been keeping - Stories to Inspire and Teach....

However, last week I was confronted with the task of giving a speech to a group that had heard many of my stories before..... so I pulled a story that has been around the internet - out of my hat. Today, It is originally a self-help story about life but it applies to teaching. So I remixed and made it teacher friendly. I hope it inspires someone!

Here's the Flash full screen version.
