One of my all-time favorite poets wrote the famous phrase, “For if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly”, and I believe he meant that without dreams, we cannot go anywhere. We cannot do what we are meant to do. Yet, how many school experiences actively engage students in dreaming? Did you hear those students? They are actively engaged in dreaming by their teachers.
When we teach our students the habit of dreaming, of looking to the future, we teach a habit that will serve them all their lives. Our new Dreamline program gives teachers the structure and support to do that AND it links dreams with values. When we accomplish that, we get what I call “power dreams.” Not dreams about power, but dreams that power us, that make us keep going.
If you haven’t already, I’d love it if you visit our new Facebook page @DreamlineB , Follow it, and post something about how important it is to hear these students’ voices and how we want their chorus to be millions strong. Thanks!
