If you have seen the advertisements or show for the Broadway musical WICKED, we can make a connection to education. Wicked, the untold story of the Witches of OZ. My point of reference with the musical is not one of witchcraft or trickery, but just to demonstrate that we may think we know the desired ending; but it’s not always as it appears. As educators we see the value of creating relationships to make life long impressions. If you have not seen the production, I don’t want to give the story line away. The relationship and dialogue with Elphaba and the Professor Dillamond is key to understanding the importance of knowing your students. If you have seen the play the connection is clear.
As educators we must continue to make connections, foster relationships and build lives.
We love what we do!
