Real World Scholars Project

Two nights ago, I had the opportunity to attend an event put on by Real World Scholars (  Michael Crawford and Elyse Burden were tremendous hosts of the event at which I was able to network with many who share my passions for changing education to make it more entrepreneurial and authentic for students.  I have to say that hanging with others of the same mindset actually inspires me to try new and better ways to form my classroom into an authentic and innovative platform for students who want to explore and become more entrepreneurial in their lives and in their careers.

As I discussed topics with my colleagues at the event, I realized how lucky I have been to be placed before the opportunities presented to me to learn, to innovate, to create, and I had to think about how effective professional development could truly be if more teachers had the chance to congregate and percolate ideas for change.

In the Fall, I am hoping to partner with the Real World Scholars organization in order to start a business in my classroom with my students.  I am looking forward to the guidance of RWS to teach my students the skills of being entrepreneurial decision makers for themselves and for their future students and colleagues.
