Carve Out Your Role

Our pursuit of purpose must be proactive. It doesn't just happen. We need to put ourselves in the best positions for good things to happen. Every teacher wants to make an impact on the lives of their students. But what is that impact? What makes our impact different than someone else's? Today we take a look at the comedy Sister Act. This movie is funny and uplifting and shows us the idea that everyone is essential. It is our responsibility to find to way to make our unique impact on our community. This is The Elephant in the Classroom.
