Super Heroes

When I was a kid, it wasn’t like it is today …  I only had 3 channels on the TV (not over 500) and we had an antenna outside that we could turn to a certain spot and MAYBE get the 4th channel.  Cartoons only came on Saturday mornings and were only on only for a little while.  Today there are on entire channels, and they are on 24 hours a day.  And today there are so many different cartoon characters whereas back in the day it was Mickey Mouse and his friends, Bugs Bunny and his friends, Scooby Doo and his friends, and then there were the Super Friends … Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman & Robin, and Aquaman.

Super Hero -- All 4 together

They were a part of the Justice League that had its headquarters in the Hall of Justice.  If there was an emergency the Super Friends came to the rescue.  They all had very different powers, and they used their different powers toward the common goal.  They would always save the day.  They were able to resolve whatever conflict came there way.  They were individuals but they could work together.  They fought for the good and they won!

There are superheroes in every school, and they all have different powers and work toward the common goal.  They are teachers.    In every school in every city in every state, they use their super powers to help save the world.   They work hard everyday to make sure that the students have the knowledge and ability to think and solve problems.   They fight to save the day.   They haven’t won yet, but they are winning.

Each of our super heroes … the cartoon super heroes and the real super heroes in our schools … even though they all have different powers, there is still one super power they all have in common — COURAGE.

  • Courage to fight the fight!
  • Courage to face each day with its monumental obstacles and sometimes insurmountable odds!
  • Courage to accept the challenge!
  • Courage to win!

    Ok- wow, a blast from the past. Also, Remember when the only way to get an answer to a question was to either research it in the library or find someone who knew? In comparing todays childhood to our yesteryears, what strikes me most is the ability to learn anything, anywhere with the “superpower” of the internet. I would have thought that ability pure fiction when I was a kid as would most teachers I know. Just as the times are changing, I see our “superpowers” are changing as well and we must have the courage to use the new superpowers in all of the ways you mentioned above! In a recent PD training I attended, the upcoming “superpower” is Holograms (for real and for us to use courageously)!

    Teacher’s superpowers multiply and change everyday as they adapt to the needs of the students and to the needs of today’s schools. Keep building your arsenal.
