I’m still trying to have a more complete understanding of the meaning of passion. I’ve read Merriam-Webster online dictionary, which offers the following synonym discussion of PASSION:
passion, fervor, ardor, enthusiasm, zeal mean intense emotion compelling action. passion applies to an emotion that is deeply stirring or ungovernable
I have watched Silvia Tolisano’s video Passion In Education.
As I continue to wrap my brain around passion and education, I begin to think of my PLN. Yes, an excellent means of illustrating passion in education would be to offer examples of people who are passionate about education. I know that students develop a greater understanding when given examples. I pull a list of PLN members. Whoa, I find it very difficult to make choices but do offer the following names: Silva Tolisano @langwiches, Kelly Tenkely @ktenkely, Kevin Jarrett @kjarrett, Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher, Edna Sackson @whatedsaid, Kathleen McGeady @kathmcgeady, Pernille Ripp @4thGrdTeach, Karen Keenan @2ndgradeteach, George Couros @gcouros, and Chris Wejr @Mr.Wejr.After checking these web pages my understanding of passion in education is much more complete and I know yours will be also. Have you found your passion? Sir Ken Robinson says, “Finding your passion changes everything.” I would love to hear your comments on passion.
