I’m in Norman Public Schools this morning, continuing to work with Matt Tilley and a group of his students on a OKC3 Project about Clara Luper and the civil rights movement in Oklahoma. Matt has the following inspiring paragraph on his desk, and I think it’s worth sharing.

I will hold my students to a standard that each of them deserves, a standard that they may not be familiar with, a standard that will ensure future successes should they live up to it. More importantly, I will reach far and wide to find ways to facilitate that success.

Excellent words to think about as we wrap up the fall semester here in central Oklahoma.

  1. Joe Bires says:

    Great quote about the definition of differentiation of instruction and assessment, while still maintaining high standards.

    Turns out these are Matt’s own words, which he wrote during an inservice earlier this year.
