Creating  Effective Teaching/Learning Cultures for Diverse Learners    
Today's Agenda
There is, has been, and will always be a
certain group of people whom inspiration
visits. It's made up of all those who've
consciously chosen their calling and do their
job with love and imagination...Their work
becomes one continuous adventure as long
as they manage to keep discovering new
challenges in it. Difficulties and setbacks
never quell their curiosity. A swarm of new
questions emerges from every problem they
solve. Whatever inspiration is, it's born from a
continuous "I don't know."
