Did not know it was #WorldTeachersDay until this morning. All respect to all teachers. I will be celebrating by... teaching. :-) (tweet by Bill Ivey)

The Journey in Mind

October 05, 2015 by Bill Ivey

This year’s theme for World Teaching Day is “Empowering teachers, building sustainable societies.” As the UNESCO website further notes, “teachers are not only a means to implementing education goals; they are the key to sustainability and national capacity in achieving learning and creating societies based on knowledge, values and ethics.” That sentiment blends well with our Mission Statement, as we seek to enable our graduates to “pursue meaningful lives based on honor, respect and intellectual curiosity” and to “think independently and act ethically.” Of course, our Mission Statement also calls us specifically to enable girls’ and women’s voices to be both heard and valued.
