Student Dalton Sherman’s message to the teachers in Dallas ISD and to educators around the world via the YouTube video of his convocation message is powerful and simple: Believe in your students, believe in your colleagues, and believe in yourself.
This eight minute video clip would make an ideal start to a staff meeting this year when you want to help other teachers focus on some big-picture issues.
