Make an impact

What is schooling all about? Sometimes we can get so involved in delivering the curriculum and assessing student learning that we lose sight on what we are doing it for. "It's not all about schooling and teaching - you have to learn to live life as well." (Per Folkesson)

In the following video Rick Rigsby delivers a powerful speech on how his father's teachings have guided him through the most troubling times of his life.It is about aspiring not just to make a living but making a difference.

By the way, this video and other videos by Rick provide excellent ideas for graduation speeches. I would use it in an assembly as well as a staff meeting.
